Originally from Western Canada, Janice Wright now calls Arvada, Colorado her home. A Visual Communications graduate from the Alberta College of Art of Canada, Wright worked as a graphic designer for over fifteen years. A one-year residence in Europe provided her the opportunity to see paintings that previously she had only see in art history books. Profoundly moved by the experience, she stopped producing commercial art and began to paint in earnest. Influenced by the dynamic brush strokes of Van Gogh, and the American Expressionists Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell, she works in acrylic. An avid hiker and photographer, she draws upon the landscape around her for subject matter and inspiration. Janice paints in the studio and en plein air. Her work has been exhibited in multiple group and solo shows in Canada and the US and she has won much acclaim for her work.
