About the artist...
My connection to people is very important. I am intrigued by humans’ ability to show emotion through gesture in the body’s language. I study, empathize with and depict the human condition by creating renditions of soulful moments shaped into three dimensions. Gestural communication speaks to each of us in a personal way. The sculptural object gives us the opportunity to consider things from all angles. The female figure naturally embodies a soulful response to life.
I choose clay as a medium for its malleable qualities that lend itself perfectly to represent the nuances and fluidity of the human form. Its earthy source grounds my work to the physical world giving it solidity and strength. Bronze sculpture casts preserve that candid gestural moment forever. Janette lives and works in Austin, Texas.
