About Janice’s Art

While recovering from my second bout of cancer in my early forties, I looked at a big box of get well cards by my bed and started making small collages inspired by all the flowers that friends sent me. Now I collect cards from all over and create art that captures the quirky beauty of my favorite places and gives new life to the sentiments expressed in the cards.
