Janie Lockwood

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia,  Janie Lockwood has always been interested in Art; starting with batiks, moving into watercolour, oils and finally acrylics. Though largely self-taught she has taken over 30 workshops in the USA and Canada by some of the greatest instructors; “Learning from the best instructors available” was a piece of advice Janie has taken to heart.  Breaking from traditional techniques, Janie’s experimentation with different materials led to the beautifully deep abstract landscapes that both draw you in with a sense of place and serenity.

 

Travel is an important part of Janie’s life; drawing her inspiration, in part, from places she has visited. South East Asia, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Bali are all recent areas of interest.  In Janie’s words “My focus has been to emphasize the beauty of nature by simplifying and abstracting my subject. My goal is to have the piece enjoyed from a distance but entice one closer for an intimate look at the surface. I texture the substrate before painting and apply detailed patterns at the end to increase the participation of the viewer. In doing this I hope to create a feeling of mystery and drawing a deeper involvement with my work.”

Janie is a member of  the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA); a national, non-profit artists’ organization dedicated to expanding the visibility and stature of the visual arts.
