About the Artist - Janet Pfeiffer

'Journey Inward' Mixed Media Collage 30 x 40

Janet Pfeiffer a Collagist & Mixed-Media Artist

 

Born in South Australia, Janet has travelled extensively as a child of a RAF family including the UK and 4 years living in Cyprus.

 

After having a family Janet received a Certificate 4 in Visual Merchandising. As a self-taught mixed media artist she ran classes at a local art school for adults and children. Her interest in art and healing led her to become a Creativity Coach, an InterPlay Leader (Improvised Dance), and recently an accredited Art Therapist.

 

She has now returned to the small town of Keyneton in the beautiful Barossa Valley after a number of years living in Sydney and WA.  She loves to run workshops combining art and movement. Her studio is in Keyneton where she daily works as a mixed media artist.

 

After 10 years working as a visual artist, first in watercolors, then more intuitively with acrylics and mixed media, she recently had a breakthrough with collage that has defined her experience and unified her art journey.

 

Janet says, “I re-discovered my love of combining a wide range of readily available art materials already in my studio to create fascinating collaged images. I have always been like a squirrel gathering materials wherever I go and storing them away. I search the ground almost everywhere for anything I feel will help build interesting surfaces. Discarded items of all types become treasures for collagists. No material is too inferior to be used and most of my collage pieces are not found at the art shop.”

 

Janet finds collage a stimulating exploratory medium, a tactile wonderland where “the sky is the limit” and there are no rules regarding combinations of materials and media. Anything goes and anything is possible. This frees her creative spirit to experiment with and explore many combinations of media, materials, methods and techniques.
