About the Artist... 

Janet Bonneau grew up on a farm in northern VT, surrounded by the beauty of Vermont mountains, rivers and fields. She began oil painting as a teenager and enjoys working directly from nature. Her landscapes are primarily painted ‘en plein air’ or outdoors. She finds inspiration through all the season, in particular fall and winter. Her paintings are best described as impressionistic and colorful with lively brushwork.

She received her art training at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, in Baltimore, Maryland, and continues a course of self-study through daily painting or drawing.

“I feel the most centered when I’m out painting the local countryside. I try and capture that one thing about the scene that first caught my eye and how it made me feel. It’s helpful to be familiar with the place you’re painting and so I often visit the same places but in different seasons. But sometimes beauty is in your own backyard which is why I also just love painting in the woods around my house.”
Janet also enjoys teaming up her ‘painting buddies’’ for outdoor painting sessions whenever possible.
