A Kitchener native, Janice Saunders graduated from the University of Waterloo, with a BA in Fine Arts. While raising five active boys, she focused on fine art photography as her primary medium, and then later returned to painting in oil and acrylic. She enjoys painting both en plein air and in her home studio, and her subject matter includes landscape, still life and some figurative work. When asked to describe her work, Janice replies, “I have always worked in a painterly style and I love colour and pattern. I am drawn to the gesture, not the detail.” Janice is also a graduate of the Independent Studio Program at the Haliburton School of Arts, and a graduate of the Humber School for Writers.
