Jani is an award winning water media and graphite artist.
Painting with the use of a lot of water somehow works for her and has become part of her emotive, painterly style she calls Impressionistic Realism.
'Although I am capable of doing photo-real work, I prefer creating works that lean towards a looser rendering of the real and leave a little to the viewer's imagination. Lots of layering is used to capture the complexity and create depth. A bit of mystery on how it was done is always fun.'
'Using drips, blooms and bright colors fits my adventurous personality. It's the chase of corralling the watercolors wildness that keeps me using this media, but at the same time allowing it to remain wild. Always challenging. Finishing works with pastels and/or India Ink incorporates my drawing skills and seems to complete certain pieces of art.'
