Getting to Know Janet

Janet Hamilton is an abstract painter who works in distinct series. She benefits from a large and stunning studio where she feels free to create. “My studio is a converted library with stained glass windows, a balcony and a big fireplace. It has aged wood beams and sunlight everywhere,” she says. “It is my home inside my home.” Janet’s work is inspired by the relationship between nature and urban decay. She uses color to evoke emotion and mood. The work is heavily textured, a result of many tools, most commonly knives. “I got to where I am today by practicing every day,” Janet muses. “ I never had any formal training. Just an obsession for paint on canvas.”
