Boars Head Rock from Cahills Lookout
Janet took lessons in drawing and painting with well known artist Timm (Tibor) Murany, who graduated from the Kunst Academy in Germany, the Medici Academy of Florence Italy and the National Art School in Sydney. Timm is well-known for his bright and colourful contemporary art which has influenced Janet’s artistic style.
Since her retirement in 2009, Janet has returned to painting and her passion is to paint from nature.
She enjoys painting landscapes, native birds and animals, and has developed an interest in painting in a more contemporary style.
