Janice Lightowler BA(Hons), USWA, ASU
After graduating from the University of Ulster in Belfast with B.A.(Hons) in 1990, Janice formed her business at home in Moira, Co. Down.
Her enthusiasm for art developed on holiday when she was eleven years old. Janice took ill with Chickenpox and being housebound, her father bought artist materials to help pass the time. This was when Janice’s talent began to emerge.
Janice creates stunningly naturalistic images of the world around her. Each painting is characterised by radiant luminosity combined with a deep richness of colour and intense observation. Janice’s main mediums are oil on linen or canvas and pencil drawing, which portray her meticulous approach to detail that is a hallmark of her work.
Janice’s technical accomplishment and skilful handling of oil paint give a reverence to her everyday subject matter. Fishing trawlers, wild flowers, muddy lanes or cows in a field are all rendered with extraordinary accuracy, offering an intense appreciation of these ordinary things.
Janice has exhibited and sold her work in many countries, including many local galleries, the RDS in Dublin and Mall Galleries in London.
As well as working on her own compositions, Janice also accepts commissions and provides tuition
