About

I am one Janet living on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, with two passions – art and writing.

My business is Viridian Earth Contracts, and I often use “Viridian Earth Art” as an umbrella for my creations. This website, janetandjanet.ca, holds space for creativity and is my playground.

Opening Time
Wildfire Fighter
One Fall Day

I paint in a corner of our dining room and walk back and forth, 15 feet or so, to the end of the kitchen to get a better perspective of the pictures emerging from my canvas. This way I also have the benefit of unsolicited advice from family and friends just when I need it most.

The dining room is also where I write. I look to the right, through the window, at the ocean, or to the left, through the window, to the garden and catch my muse somewhere in between.
