About the Artist… 

Janet Bonneau is a native Vermonter who grew up on a farm, surrounded by the beauty of Vermont mountains, rivers and fields. She began oil painting as a teenager and went on to major in Painting and Art History at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, MD. She also holds a degree in English Literature. 

She prefers to work directly from nature ‘en plein air’ or outdoors, seeing the landscape through the lens of intuitive and emotional expression. She has been been greatly influenced by the Impressionists Monet, Degas and Van Gogh.

When she’s not painting, she wears her musician’s hat as a member of the Vermont Fiddle Orchestra, exploring her love of music on multiple instruments including fiddle, cello, mandolin, guitar, and piano.
