Janet Campbell has always had a love of art and nature. Her initial art education was in the Botanical Illustration Program at the Bronx Botanical Garden. This led to an interest in watercolor whose unpredictability corresponded to Janet's desire to become looser in her artistic expression. She attempts to capture the essence of a subject while freeing the pigment to create on its own whenever possible.
Janet has had an opportunity to work with a number of inspiring teachers including Mary Whitehill, Richard Ochs, Judi Betts, Mel Stabin and Eli Rosenthal. Especially excited by the art of the impressionists her favorite artists include John Singer Sergeant and Winslow Homer.
