Janice’s work has depth and texture, and reveals surprises for the astute observer.  She loves to capture the complexity of iconic places in both her hometown of Boston, where she lives now, and her second love, Philadelphia, where she launched her art career.

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.
