Le Pouldu, France painting holidays
Welcome

Janis Fry's paintings are in watercolour, ink and gouache, mixed media, acrylic and oil. Sizes vary from 1 to 4 feet, in any one dimension. Janis is Vice President of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales, but she also likes to paint in oil and acrylic. Although her subject matter varies, she is essentially a painter of natural landscape, trees, particularly Yew trees, the sea, Tree of Life and Celtic mythology and portraits. In her work she is concerned with mood, atmosphere and those things half seen. She is fascinated by the boundaries between things and people, where one thing ends and another begins, by precise and indistinct edges, by merging, fading and emergence. An important motif is portals and ways through, between worlds and states of consciousness.

Work on view by appointment only. At present Janis is preparing for a major exhibition called 'The Sacred Yew' with Valerie James and Paul Greenwood, opening on April 1st 2016 until May 7th at Taliesin Art Centre, Swansea University, Wales UK
