Janis Glover - Artist
Butchers Row, Pannier Market, Market Place
Janis Glover, contemporary artist, works in oils, pastels and watercolour - sometimes mixing media. She is especially drawn to depicting the Devon moors and beaches.
" I love the combination of pebbles, pools, sand and waves," she explains, and while her work has abstract qualities, the images are instantly identifiable for where and what they are.
Her pastel work is particularly engaging, the subtlety and skill of blended shades and washes highlighted by bolder lines to accentuate landscape and other features.
" My art is a response to the landscape of the beach, the moor and also the human figure. Whatever the season, the Devon landscape is breathtakingly beautiful and constantly changing. "
With a fine art degree from Birmingham and many years experience of teaching art and running workshops, Janis is proud to be part of the creative community in Bideford's heart.
