MEREDITH JANSSEN

 

Watercolor artist, oil painter, printmaker, jewelry designer.

 

My work shows the diversity of my interests, from landscapes to still-life, realism to abstraction, in all different media. I frequently work in several  disciplines concurrently. I try to depict the beauty in the mundane and infuse emotion into the objects I paint and create. Nature is my main inspiration and my goal is to capture the feelings I have when I look at a scene (be it intimate or vast) then translate them onto the paper or canvas.”

"WHEN YOU BUY SOMETHING FROM AN ARTIST, YOU’RE BUYING MORE THAN AN OBJECT.   YOU’RE BUYING HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF ERRORS AND EXPERIMENTATION.  YOU’RE BUYING YEARS OF FRUSTRATION AND MOMENTS OF PURE JOY.  YOU’RE NOT BUYING JUST ONE THING, YOU ARE BUYING A PIECE OF A HEART, A PIECE OF A SOUL…A SMALL PIECE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE."  AUTHOR UNKNOWN
