Featured Artist: Janet Main

Janet is a native of Kitchener, Ontario. After studying Canadian native cultures and religious studies at the University of Toronto, she moved to Elphinstone, Manitoba, and lived for three years near Riding Mountain National Park. Here, she deepened her interest in native arts and culture and studied the Saulteaux language, healing herbs, wild flowers and wildlife. Then, Janet lived three years in Brandon where she studied the spirituality of various traditions, drama, native studies, and English at Brandon University, before coming back home to Kitchener to work with the family business.

Now, Janet enjoys time spent with friends and family, including her mother, daughter and two, dear grandchildren. She now lives in a cottage on a small lake near Elmwood, Ontario. Her interests include watercolours, travel, writing, photography and will soon hold art classes in the Elmwood/Hanover areas.

Janet began to develop a serious interest in watercolour painting in 2004. She has studied with artists, Ardythe Campbell and Marion Anderson of Kitchener and New Dundee, Art Cunanan of Collingwood, and Gordon MacKenzie of Sault Ste. Marie.
