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 Ltd, which looks after the writing/editing side of things, and I often use Viridian Earth Art as an umbrella for my creations. This website, JanetandJanet, allows for more scope of flow. It holds space for creativity and is possibly the child that might never really grow up.

This site is my playground.

Opening Time
Wildfire Fighter
One Fall Day

I paint in a corner of our dining room and walk back and forth, 25 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 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.
