Paintings & Paper Arts by Janet Warren Exhibit Opens in Display Gallery
A native of Alabama, Janet (Jan) Warren graduated from Jacksonville State University and moved to Georgia in 1970. Her love of color began in childhood with drives in the country on Sundays after church with her family. At the time, she complained the only thing to look at were green and brown trees. Soon she began to notice the variety of shapes and shades of color each tree possessed.
Coming from a family of creative thinkers, she enjoys assisting others in interior design and in the arts. Living in metro-Atlanta has given her the opportunity to study under several local artists and she continues to search for new avenues of learning. She has painted with oils in the past, but recently she has been working with acrylics and watercolor pencils.
Jan’s first challenge in acrylics was to paint a “rooster,” suggested by her teacher. She found roosters make an exciting subject and she continues this pursuit. Being a true Aquarian, she loves versatility in her art and continues to seek out new subjects to paint. She is excited to share her newest creations with you during May and June, 2013. Jan’s love of art can be found in her contemporary and traditional art, greeting cards, and gift items.
Her client base extends from Alaska to Florida. Jan’s art is also available at Donna Van Gogh’s in Decatur, Marietta’s First Friday ArtWalk during the months of April through October 2013. Her work is listed as Janzart Originals and is located at the Arts of Cobb, 19 Powder Springs St, Marietta.
She shares her art on Facebook under Creative Tapestry. Janzart Originals and gift items are at (1) Creativetapestry.com, (2) Fine Art of America and, (3) soon she will be on Etsy. For more information about her work, you are welcome to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
