Janet Bridgland

Janet paints imaginary friends and narratives and her work may be seen in collections across Australia and Europe. She occasionally teaches painting and drawing and has illustrated children’s books and book covers.

“I use water colours because I adore the way colours work on the paper and I love the white space of the paper.
“My work is populated by people, animals and their curious activities.
“I am very lucky having this extra dimension in my life. It’s like having a key to a door which opens into another world. I find this world amazing, amusing and sometimes very trying but always the most constant thing in my life.”
