Janet Dosenberry

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a wife and mother of four children and four grandchildren. I started my watercolor journey 30 years ago. . I own and operate my own salon called," JD Designs", where I display my art and also where I am a master in all aspects of hair design. I have taken several art workshops where I continue to learn hone my skills learning new techniques. My artwork has displayed at six different galleries and I have originals in private collections throughout the country. I have been accepted at numerous juried art show including the "Celebration of the Arts" along with "Festival of the Arts". I have had the privilege to be in ArtPrize for the past 8 years. I also have a store on Etsy called jdoozedesigns where I sell my originals and prints. My website is jdoozedesigns.etsy.com. As you can see doing artwork is my passion. I am deeply intrigued by the hidden challenges of this medium and exploring the unknown nature of it has aroused my curiosity and creativity. The creation of watercolor is a complicated process, but I find it extremely pleasurable. The final mastery that I can achieve with the brush or gives me the unequaled thrill of being able to create without hesitation whatever my eye sees as well as that which I can imagine. I truly hope my painting's have the power to ease one's mind and take the viewer to a place of beauty and peace. The mastery of color and balance of subject matter in my paintings can align the viewer in a way that will calm the nerves and excite the senses.
