Janet Pfeiffer is a qualified art therapist, mixed media collage artist and intuitive painter.

Born in South Australia but has travelled extensively throughout the UK and Cyprus as a child of a RAF family.


She has recently returned to the small town of Keyneton in the beautiful Barossa Valley Wine Region of SA after a number of years living in Sydney, NSW and Perth, WA.


Her painting is interpretive and abstract in character and her inspiration comes from her exploration of the textures, colours and shapes all around us, all the time, in every place, but especially in the intrinsic beauty of the natural world.


As an artist she has faith in the intelligence of the creative process and blends structure with chance. She believes the painting materials are her partners not her slaves.


Mixed Media offers Janet the freedom she needs to stay open and responsive to the present moment and whatever the painting process brings forth. She says, "To paint the same style with the same medium over and over would quickly stifle my creativity. My painting style emerges out of experimenting with the materials and I am always surprised by the outcomes."
