About Janis Cornish

Janis Cornish

Janis is a self-taught artist from Barrie, Ontario.

'I love drawing and painting'

...Until she'd been away from it for a while she didn't realize how much she depended upon her creative outlet for inner peace.

'It felt like there was something missing',

...And there was. Due to the challenges of raising 3 kids on her own and balancing a full-time job, Janis had taken a break from painting, which lasted several years.

'It wasn't until recovering from a life threatening illness that I discovered how fleeting life is, and how important painting is to my life force'

...She employs a variety of mediums in her work and utilizes versatility of style. However, her favorite works are interpretive and symbolic. Her awareness of mind, body and spirit along with her love of nature and humanity as a whole, can be seen and felt when viewing her work.

'I need a bigger studio to create everything that is stored in my mind'.

...Eventually, she hopes to manifest the studio she pictures in her mind and heart each day. For now, she works out of a small room in her home that has been converted to a make shift studio.

Janis' work has been displayed in City Hall in Barrie, Ontario, as well as the D.I.Y. Arts Collective's Front Room Gallery and Creative Palette Gallery and Gift shop in Thornton, Ontario..

In September 2013, Janis' piece titled 'United Light' was featured on the cover of Spirit Seeker Magazine Vol. 17, issue No. 9 in the U.S. She continues to seek oppourtunities to show-case her work.

Artist Statement

My paintings are a reflection of my life experiences and have played a huge role in my search for peace, inspiration and acceptance. When I learned to let go of the emotions from my past, I was able to unleash a channel of creativity that is inexorable and I welcome it completely. I like to include a glimpse of my own story while eliciting a more universal interpretation in my work.
I live conscientiously, both through my paintings and in my daily life, striving to keep in harmony with nature and humanity.
As a mother and an artist, my children have had an influence on the substance of my work, providing me with alternative themes which, led to my versatility of style.
I like to portray confidence and playfulness in my images but focus on the energy that surrounds me during the creative process, letting it unfold as it may.
My colour palette is important to me when expressing the connectedness and vitality of the universal themes. They are often depicted in my images as subtle nuances, while intensely obvious in others. My preferred styles have colours that help to invoke mind, body and spirit in relation to the chakras of our energetic being.
It is through that connectedness and my love of nature that I continue to explore this awareness in my art. With every piece I create, I discover something new about myself or the universe.
