Flowers represent happiness; their beauty energizes and comforts me.
With rich, vibrant colours and a free and open style, Janick’s paintings explore the wonders of nature, particularly the beauty of flowers.
She was born and raised in Laval, Quebec. Under the tutelage of her father, Janick started oil painting at age 9 and by age 14 was exhibiting at the Foyer des Arts gallery in Montreal’s downtown Eaton store. In 1986, she switched from oil painting to watercolours and subsequently studied with a number of well-known watercolour artists. Janick has exhibited in galleries and art shows in Quebec, Ontario and New Mexico.
Her love of the out-of-doors is reflected in other aspects of her life. She is an avid cross-country skier, hiker, cyclist and organic gardener, as well as a professional agrologist.
