Series: Winter Walk
A series of prints drawn from the experience of walking in the woods in late winter - dripping ice, the sun angling through the woods, striking patterns off the bark, and the first hint of spring growth.
All of Janet’s work draws from her close observations of our physical world. Lines and shapes distilled from nature become a visual language for exploring our connections with each other and with nature. She seeks visual stories of calm and unity–the beauty of the world and the shared truths of our lives.
In her original prints, Janet works with these organic shapes and marks, and combines them with photography and painted textures. These striking graphic compositions refer to her own personal engagement with nature, but also to our common journey. The prints are peaceful, with a calm palette and a cool vibe that speaks to the quiet moments they are drawn from.
Following her BFA, Janet Taylor took a brief but engaging thirty-year detour into graphic design, interactive media and photography. In 2016 she returned to fine art and has been building her studio practice since then. Janet’s work is in collections in Canada, the US and the UK, and has been seen in Style at Home and Uppercase magazines, and on HGTV Home Tours.
After many years in the Toronto area, Janet is following her heart and moving her studio to Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia.
