Artist participating in 20 x 20 Exhibition: Edition 2
Gaining her BA(Hons) in Fine Art from the University of Plymouth in 2000, Janet Hockley also trained in Horticulture and Plant Science and her love or plants and nature has a strong influence on her artistic practice. The blending of the natural and the manmade and places where these elements coexist often form the starting point for Janet’s bright and lively acrylic paintings. She works with three art galleries in Devon and is an active member of Topsham Art Society. Living in Devon, much of the inspiration for her work comes from exploring the countryside, coasts, rivers and towns near her home. Although she does sometimes work en plein air, each piece usually starts from a reference photo or sketches made on site.
One of her series of little bird portraits.
