About the Maker
My name is Janice,
I'm a self-taught artist based out of the southeast corner of Manitoba, Canada. My passion for watercolour was sparked with a Mother's Day gift in 2019, after I picked up the brush and started to dabble in this medium, I knew that this was something more than just a new hobby.
I'm am currently a stay at home mom of four, crazy, energetic, little kiddos ages 2 - 9 years old, hence the Mother's Day gift of paints to help me unwind after a long day, or who am I kidding, to escape from the constant bickering.
I've always been creative-minded as long as I can remember, when I was a younger school aged girl, I often would sketch Garfield comics to scale and colour them, also drew a lot of Looney tunes characters, and as I got older I painted any thing I could get my hands on. Even did a mural with my friends on my bedroom wall as a teen. After I got married, I dabbled in making wood signs and while it was enjoyable it didn't spark passion.
I first discovered watercolour through the Pinterest platform, something about the delicate colours and texture of the paper the pieces displayed, intrigued me. So after a few well laid hints, my amazing husband (on behalf of our young children) got me my first palette and paper, and so began this new art journey.
After getting a feel for my talents, I started to post photos of my dabbling on Instagram, and after getting a lot of positive feedback, I started to create customs for family and friends. I also participated in a local art contest in the beginning of 2020 and won a third place ribbon, and the following year, I won first place in that same contest!
I THRIVE on creating new & custom pieces for you! When I paint something, I connect with each piece and pour my heart and time into it. When you choose to order a custom piece from me, or any piece for that matter, I can promise you that I will put all my concentration and creativity into your piece, that you will be satisfied with the end result.
So thank you for reading my story, and taking the time to be a part of my journey, I appreciate all the love and support and of course any future purchases you plan to make!
