Janet Griffiths graduated from the BA hons Fine Art:Painting course at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1996 and from the MA in Fine Art at MMU in 2001. Since that time she has exhibited in solo and group shows all over the North of England, Europe and the USA. Her practice has spanned: painting, drawing and printmaking, photography and video, performance and installation.
Now living in West Yorkshire after moving from the city of Manchester, Janet has been concentrating on painting and hand-produced monoprints for the past three years. She draws inspiration from the landscape around her and places she visits, working intuitively on abstract landscape which sometimes incorporate figures: flying and swimming (two of her favourite themes). She likes to explore materials to paint on: glass and perspex, wood, slate and marble which add texture to her works and often prints from the paintings to create experimental works.
Janet works with bold, expressive colour and marks to create texture and emotion. She likes to create playful energetic uplifting works which 'dance'. Janet is also a Yoga teacher which feeds its prana and energy into her work.
