Watch me Paint on YouTube
My name is Janette Rose. I live in Michigan with my husband and two kids. I've had many different jobs and at one point I was in college studying to be a Nuclear Medical Technician. I was never really passionate for it, so when I met the man I was to marry, it was easy for me to stop pursuing my degree and be a wife and mother.
I have been in love with anything that has to do with art for as long as I can remember. I grew up coloring, doodling, drawing, and painting all the time. Homework, notes, church bulletins,..etc, all were full of my doodles and ideas. In my young, high school days, I really enjoyed painting on the inside of seashells. This is probably where I gained such a liking to painting on leaves :). When I paint, I tend to
pay attention to tiny details. This tendency makes painting on small canvases like the leaf very challenging and exciting for me. Everywhere I look, I find inspiration for painting: the pattern in the clouds, the shadow from my flowers on the table, the colors on a butterfly.
Beauty is at the heart of my paintings. God, the greatest artist of us all, has created a world with so much beauty, I
can't help but be surrounded by inspiration. Art is in my heart. It always has been and always will be. - Janette Rose
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
