Originally a Montreal-er, Janet McDonald is now an Island Girl calling Vancouver Island home and Maui her home away from home!. As an artist, color and light are the passion behind Janet's work. She enjoys exploring these elements in a variety of subject matter including figurative work and nature. Janet says: "There are so many beautiful visuals in life that come and go, and the driving force behind my work is to help us linger in those moments and really feel them." Painting in both acrylics and oil, Janet's work tends to be bright and lights up a room. She enjoys expanding her skills through continuing studies: "I really enjoy challenging myself and broadening the boundaries of my art", says McDonald. Her work is currently available in several galleries on the Islands.
