About the Artist, Janet Jaffke
I’ve been an artist and “maker of things” all my life.
I was greatly influenced by my father – a master “old school” carpenter. We spent many hours together in his workshop (our garage) and I watched him carefully perfect his craft. Sometimes he would give me little projects to work on, or we would make something together. He taught me about patience and process, trial and error, quality, and craftsmanship. Very good lessons for a young artist in the making.
Hailing from the CVP program, our new artist of the week has been making some incredible strides with her work, pushing those themes and concepts she was already drawn to even further. Bold mark making, combined with a new sense of openness has given her compositions a vibrancy reminiscent of Wassily Kandinsky and the Abstract Expressionist Movement. We’re looking forward to seeing what this artist has in store for the future…
