Connie Janney says, “I have always been creating in one form or another. I started with oil painting in high school and changed to acrylics when I was in art school. I have worked in many mediums including oils, acrylics, collage, clay, wax carving for bronze sculptures and jewelry, large plaster sculptures and papier-mâché. My work has evolved from design drawings I did using various marker and pens. I have always been drawn to folk art because of the symbolism and bright colors and whimsy, consequently, I think much of my work does have a folk art feel to it.
My goal is not to try to recreate nature but to create the spirit of nature as it manifests through me. I believe in infinite possibilities and think of my work as joyful, whimsical and fun. My hope is that others will find joy and inspiration and fun as well.”
