Janelle Patterson is a mixed-media fiber artist, painter and photographer, who currently lives in Southwest Missouri. Many of Janelle’s works focus on taking a second look at everyday things.
IN CONTRAST is a split showing of photographs and paintings inspired by nature. This group of photographs presents a feeling of wisdom and clarity that can only be found in reflective moments away from our busy lives. Another fantastic aspect of nature is the possibility for reinterpretation of the everyday scene. Modern, high contrast paintings complete this group by adding a contemporary spin to the ordinary portrait, still life, and landscape.
Janelle began pursuing art as a child and continued into college completing her B.S.Ed in Art Education in 2007 and her M.Ed in Art Education in 2009. Janelle taught Elementary and High School Art from 2009 to 2013. She is currently taking a break from teaching to focus on her artwork and her family.
