Janet Glatz, a Mainer since birth, lives in Durham with husband Garry and Cairn Terrier Kelsey. Deep appreciation and love of her home state’s beauty plays a major role in the work she creates today.
A realist whose attention to detail is rare today, Janet paints in oils and always on linen canvas for the smooth surface and greater allowance for specifics. She is self-taught apart from several workshops.
Janet writes a blog which can be found on her website www.janetglatz.com. Here, she talks about the life of an artist, offers tips on showing art, and on making it.
Collectors across the United States and in Asia have purchased Janet’s paintings, which they most often find at juried art shows in Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. For many years she successfully showed her work in many more locations; however, of late the Bar Harbor area has proved to be most lucrative. For this reason, she specializes in Art of Acadia.
