JANETTE CURWEN
Janette was born and grew up in, Springwell, a small rural village in the North East of England. She developed a love for the countryside and nature at an early age collecting flowers and plants to press and put in albums also taking up drawing and painting.
Her creativity moved in various directions over the years but she only returned to drawing and painting 8 years ago when she had to take early retirement. Her love for flora and fauna is the key inspiration for her artwork and she works mainly in watercolour and occasionally in inks and acrylics. Although Janette has attended some classes and workshops she is mainly self-taught. She has recently completed a short course in Natural History Illustration mainly to hone her skills in drawing and to reinforce the need for regular practice.
Janette is a member of the Warrnambool and District Art Society where they have regular shows and exhibitions in their gallery, she won an award in her first year of entering in their Annual Awards. Janette has recently won a Special Merit Award from an online gallery botanical art competition for a painting of Rhododendrons. She was one of the founder members of the local Art Group, Moyne Arts in Mortlake, Victoria, the Art Group has held a very successful Open Studio and Show for the past 3 years.

Jan is mainly a botanical and natural history artist who lives in the Moyne Shire township of Mortlake. She is a member of the Warrnambool & District Art Society.
