Janet Keith is a contemporary painter based in the U.K. Her painting is a response to the visual excitement and beauty of her surroundings.Her artistic roots are in outdoor painting, working directly from life. However, that rich experience now informs a more abstract and mostly studio based approach to painting - which has become an exploration of how spontaneous gesture and considered pictorial structure weave together in building an expressive painting.
Janet's inspiration comes from the very rural surroundings of her studio and from travels near and far. She has Degrees in both the History of Art and Painting.
