Artist Profile

Janice Botsford


Mediums: Watercolor, Photography, Painting, Mixed Media/Collage, Mixed Media Paintings, Ink, Drawing, Acrylic

Janice feels that throughout her life art has been an essential part of her self-expression. Mixed media collage is especially appealing to her with its potential for the use of so many complex shapes, lush colors and varied textures. She hopes to communicate and inspire multiple levels of interpretation of her work as she connects with the viewer. Janice?s love of the natural world is revealed as she energetically and spontaneously explores different subject matter.

Born and raised in England, Janice came to the USA to complete a Masters degree in Social Work. Her part-time private practice as a psychotherapist allows time for art. Janice has studied with a number of prominent artists and she has won awards from the Michigan Watercolor Society and the Ann Arbor Women Artists. In 1994 she was commissioned by the United Nations Association to do a collage commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the UN. Lately she has enjoyed teaching workshops in mixed media collage.

Janice is professionally associated with the Chelsea Painters and the Ann Arbor Women Artists. Her work has been accepted into juried shows locally and state wide, and can be found in private and international collections.
