"We bought an amazing piece of art while in the middle of an adoption process. Shortly after seeing our sons profile with an adoption agency, I stumbled upon your art. The moment I read the piece “All of you is welcome here,” I knew this was a message that connected to bringing our boy home. We have it proudly on display in our living room as a reminder that every emotion and every part of the people in our home are welcome and loved."
"I walked by your booth at the OOAK show a few years back and your artwork caught the corner of my eye. I was immediately drawn in and fell in love with your art. It made me feel alive. It made me feel at home. Jannet, you have a special gift. Thank you for sharing a piece of you."
"You were my first when it comes to original art. The piece I bought just made me smile and I had to have it."
"One of the pieces we have hangs in the most visible spot in our house. I can’t stop looking at it, even after having it for almost two years. It brings me a sense of comfort and even though we rent, I feel as though it makes our house feel like home."
"I saw Jannet's artwork at The Artist Project. I really loved the texture and colour of the pieces and the theme of "Home" spoke to me. I would love for the piece that I purchased to remind my sons that our home will always be a refuge for them."
" As soon as I saw the piece I knew I wanted it. The colours (pastel) and the floral wax design spoke to me. It was at the OOAK show and after I saw it I thought ok I’ll look around the show and go back & get it. If it’s still there it’s meant to be. I went down 1 more aisle and couldn’t pass up the chance of someone else buying it. So I went right back to get it. I feel like if you can’t stop thinking about it, it’s the right piece!"
"Let go of should" is the message of my piece. I bought it years ago at Guelph's annual Art on the Street event. Jannet's work currently sits above my dining room table in the middle of the home, reminding us all to live in the present moment and to accept ourselves for who we are."
"2 horizontal pieces in my hallway welcome family and friends into our house. 2 pieces of flowers decorate our washroom matching the colour scheme and making it feel bright. A piece from the home series sits on a mantle. The muskoka chair piece is in my bedroom to relax me and calm me."
"I got my first piece from you while out on the Beach Studio Tour a few years ago. I was completely torn between two works of art. I remember standing there, agonizing over which one to choose. The gorgeous sunflower won out and is part of my bedroom. It is lively and sunny and makes me feel warm inside, regardless of the weather outside. When I chose it, I was with a friend. She remembered the other lovely floral piece I was so attracted to and when she and two other friends came for my birthday, they gifted it to me - I was beyond thrilled! It became part of my bathroom. The gorgeous pink and white flowers have wonderful vibrancy and yet a calming feeling also. Both pieces helped my new condo become home :)"
"I purchased a beautiful piece of art from Jannet for my master bathroom. The colours are soft and floaty, the frame rustic and rough hewn, and evokes a calming feeling of being in nature. I just love it!"
Why my art speaks to people
"The simplicity in the words carries such incredible feelings and memories that so many people can relate to. The soft colours and unique texture is beautiful!"
"Your art makes me feel alive. Everything you do is BEAUTIFUL!"
"I like the uniqueness of it. The layers of wax remind me of the layers of life- no defined lines and the overlapping of colours create a new story. Depending on my mood, it speaks to me differently. The different mediums used to create the art and how it seems to be coming off the page making you want to reach out and touch it makes you feel like it’s connecting with you."
"The whole Ode to Home collection is amazing and powerful. Hard to narrow down to the one that meant the most to us! The medium is so unique and unlike a simple framed piece of art. The meaning behind the Ode to Home collection is so relatable and can speak to so many! I love how the piece I have might look simple but when you look closely, it has layers of complexity and meaning."
"Your art is fresh, uplifting, thoughtful, smart and energetic."
"Each time I look at it I see something different. I can touch it and feel the details."
"Feels special and unique and made with care. It makes me feel calm and inspired at the same time."
"The colours, the pictures and the message. Your art makes me feel happy, relaxed and peaceful."
"I have two with flowers. One is a gorgeous, vibrant sunflower that makes me feel energized and alive. The other is a mix of lovely, tiny flowers that is more calming. The colours, the natural wood as the background, the feeling of being in the middle of them both - that is what speaks to me. I love that they both bring me positivity, in different ways."
"The piece I purchased makes me feel warm and dreamy. The colours are soft and floaty, and evokes a feeling of being in nature. I just love it!"
