Toronto. Ocadu. Artist. Freelance Illustrator
Janine is a Toronto based illustrator. Experienced in both traditional and digital design. Janine's wood panel illustrations are brimming with life and color, which are inspired by people in the public eye and the people she connects with. Her work primarily features contemporary figure’s stories and personalities. She works with acrylic paint and collage and her finished products are gallery ready.
In her process, she visualizes the finished product and takes it apart to see all the elements independently, then she labors over them to get the best possible final image.
Janine thrives in the warmth of the outdoors and being surrounded by nature. Inspired by collage and the effect of mixing traditional figures with graphic elements. Janine enjoys the juxtaposition of old and new media and design, often working with wallpaper and textured surfaces. When you look at her paintings you can see the life and energy that she invests.
