Hi, my name is Janelle Nichol and I am an artist from Canada.
Some of my favorite things to create on my pieces are playful and sweet children and strong, confident, and sometimes whimsical poses of women. I particularly enjoy creating calming and dreamy backgrounds mixed with abstract elements. My art has been described as abstract folk-art and I enjoy working with various mediums to create unique works that are inspirational and sustainable.
Some artists that inspire me are Claude Monet and Renoir and more recently, Pino Daeni. I am particularly drawn to the colors and scenes expressed in Monet’s works and the figures in Pino’s art.
In the past two years I have moved from creating Mixed Media canvases and have expanded my portfolio to include the WC (Watercolor) Collection which includes images that focus on fashion and style. In my Fine Art Paintings, I blend my abstract, dreamy backgrounds with elegant figures of beautiful women in moments of contemplation and meditation.
“Janelle has a unique ability to blend her talents of Mixed Media with a Fine Art style...Her dreamy, abstract backgrounds are reminiscent of Impressionism. She is truly talented and a pleasure to work with” -art licensing agent in Las Vegas
