'Spring Is Here' is inspired by the Bill Evans jazz trio's tune of the same name. Cherry blossoms, spring green and crisp blue skies come to mind. I used multiple layers of paint, building up texture in some areas while scraping into the surface in others. This piece comes in a custom black wood frame.

Getting to Know Janine

Janine’s abstract artworks are created with measured doses of both intuition and analysis. “My work develops as a series of calls and responses,” she says. She adds color, letting gravity pull the paint around. She then responds to the direction of the composition with additional marks, adding and subtracting. The incorporation of recognizable forms, specifically letters and numbers, indicates the influences of Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg on Janine’s work. Janine is also inspired by listening to jazz music. She is a musician herself, and plays in a local Zimbabwean marimba ensemble when she’s not painting.
