Janet Perkin

I was born and raised in England and moved to the United States in 1979. I have been a resident of Poway, California since September 1981.

I studied watercolor, oil painting, and other media by taking many workshops here and in Italy. I found my favorite media are collage and mixed media.

The main feature of my work is the use of color. I find that working in collage allows me to use my imagination. I use paint, rubber stamps and handmade papers to enhance and build up a picture. My artwork has a story or meaning behind it. Popular subjects are religious themes, ancient times and civilizations.
