3 artist spotlight: janelle howington


This week I'm highlighting a talented painter from my home city: Raleigh! She is currently the Regional Artist in Residence art Artspace, a multi-studio space and gallery in downtown Raleigh.


Janelle is inspired by the ethereal nature of birds, and started painting them as a daily warm up for painting.




She is also an accomplished portrait artist and I absolutely love her style! She seems to paint the features of her subject as they would be remembered in a daydream or a quick glance.



And I love the soft colors - reminds me of spring! For more on> Janelle, check out her website.

  1. I love the way she paints the "eyes" of her subject. I feel that I'm looking into the eyes of someone real.
