About Janita

I am a Visual Artist & Educator living & working in rural Braidwood, New South Wales, Australia.

I hold classes & workshops at my 'Bush' Art Studio, situated 20 kms south of Historic Braidwood. I specialize in pastel drawing & oil painting but also teach in many other creative mediums. My property has magnificent views of the Gourock Ranges & the Upper Shoalhaven River Valley & includes a forest of inspiring gum trees ready & waiting for that special artistic experience.

If you are interested in workshops, purchasing artwork or being placed on my mailing list for exhibitions & events,
please email me via my contact page.

Cheers Janita
