Janet Matthews

Janet's individual style of combining coloured pencil and graphite has been described as "weaving magic with pencil".

Her realistic, detailed and gentle drawings of animals and birds full of personality and humour, have won many awards.
 

Janet exhibits regularly in Australia and overseas.

Accolades include commissions by Australia Post for stamp images released in 2006 and 2009 and a work

in the permanent Focus on Nature Collection in the New York State Museum.

 

Janet has a Diploma and a Graduate Diploma of Visual Arts, -is a Fellow of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists

 and a Fellow of the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia

Her realistic, detailed and gentle drawings are always of a high standard and reflect her own personality,

 humour, life experiences and love of our wildlife. Janet's love of drawing and her rapport with 'critters' is evident

in her portrayal of animals and birds, either in their natural environment or co-habitating in suburbia.

 

Janet holds weekly classes in her Narre Warren North Studio, for adults and children, both daytime and evening.

 

She also runs workshops which focus on a theme for the day and teach many pencil techniques step by step.

 

Artworks can also be viewed at her gallery/studio or on her website.
