Garden at Night
Janine has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. She was a very shy, quiet little kid, and always felt happiest getting lost in the stories and illustrations of her favorite books. She would admire how beautiful the pictures were, think about the artists who created them, and think to herself that she wanted to become an artist, too.
Janine would then spend hours and hours trying to create her own pictures and stories.
Whatever form it takes, Janine's work always tells a story or shares some meaning that she would never be able to express with just words alone.
The thought of being able to share her work with others once it's finished is a big part of what makes the process of creating art so enjoyable for Janine. If she can make someone smile or laugh or feel something positive when they see her work, that really makes Janine feel awesome--like she's doing something to balance out the negativity in the world, in her own small way.
