Janet Skates is a native Oklahoman. She has studied painting and lived in Japan, Singapore, and The Netherlands. She has obtained her Masters in Floral Design.
She is a mixed-media, abstract and figurative artist. A color passionista she is inspired by music, flowers, plants and other artists. As an intuitive painter, Janet rarely begins with a clearly defined picture of what she is creating. Rather, she often begins with some color selections and allows the process to determine the direction
Janet says on her website: "It is my heartfelt belief that every person embodies a creative energy and unique voice. My paintings are how I share my joy with the world. Through my teaching, public speaking and private coaching I encourage and nurture others so they can express their own creativity and influence the world for good. "
She partners with Ahoy! Gallery in Spain for some larger pieces but handles all other works from her home studio.
She teaches extensively throughout the United States and looks forward to international classes in 2020.
She will be teaching a two-day course in April, here at SW Craft Connection. We are so thrilled to be hosting her event
