Janice Addison – Watercolour
Janice Addison has been a resident of the Kawartha Lakes area, for most of her lifetime. Since childhood, she has had an artistic flair and was encouraged in the arts. Choosing studies at Peterborough Teacher’s College over Ontario College of Art and Design, she directed her creativity and artistic talents towards a rewarding career of teaching primary students. In her personal time, Janice continued to engage in various art forms and media.
Edwin Matthews, former owner and resident artist of Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn, was Janice’s inspiration to pursue watercolour as a means of visual expression. Now, watercolour is the medium for which she is most known.
Using strong, expressive colour, Janice especially likes painting water and landscapes, but is equally adept at painting still life, flowers and architecture. Exploration with life drawing and abstraction round out her subject matter. Over the years, Janice’s media repertoire has expanded to include acrylic, charcoal, graphite, ink, collage and mixed media, but watercolour remains her medium of choice.
