About

Hello! 

Wanna hear about the face behind the paintings? Great, then you are in the right place!

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 a 27 year old stay at home mom of four, crazy, energetic, little kiddos ages almost 1 - 7 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!

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.

Also know that as I continue to learn and grow with each experience, if you are in any way dissatisfied with a piece I will do my best to accommodate you.

So thank-you for reading my little story, and taking the time to check out my corner of the inter webs. I appreciate all the love and support and of course and future purchases you plan to make!
