Janice Walton - Biography

Janice Walton trained at Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanston College and at Edinburgh Art College. Having three children in her mid twenties she then did mainly commissioned work and private teaching. When she moved to Surrey in the mid-eighties she undertook much more teaching and studied the human form in great depth, working intensively from the model.

Janice’s expertise for many years was in Pastels but recently she felt the need to devote all of her time to the development of her own individual work which is now also in oils. Her subject matter has moved from almost exclusively the human form into the world of still life and recollections of past experiences. Her style has developed into expressionistic constructivism, with a strong sense of colour and balanced composition reflecting the many hours of exploratory drawing she has always done. Regular trips to South Africa have resulted in original interpretations of wildlife imagery. Having moved to a house by the sea in South Devon a number of years ago, seascapes and local landscapes – in particular Burgh Island and the Hotel -are now part of Janice’s repertoire.
