About Janet Cannon's Art   IsleWrite.com



Janet Cannon studied art at the University of Iowa Graduate School of Art. She has shown her work in California, New York, New Mexico, Iowa, Illinois, and Washington. Her graphics have appeared in various publications, and Janet was a collective gallery curator for The First Majority Art Gallery in Berkeley, CA. Janet has taught art at the elementary and high school levels, as well as to adults.

As a graduate student Janet was a ceramics major doing mostly clay sculpture, but she also made functional pottery pieces that she sold at art and craft fairs. In addition to ceramic sculpture, Janet studied photography, drawing, painting, and metal sculpture while at graduate school.

Since then, Janet has focused her visual art on painting and photography. She has painted with oils and for a period of time worked solely with watercolors. Now Janet paints with acrylics on canvas, and takes digital photos that she manipulates to create unique aesthetic images.
