Janice Opie

Janice Opie is a returning member and at one time was in charge of publicity. She has always been a lover of watercolours. Over the years she has ventured into other mediums, Thangka painting in India, painting silk to create wearable art selling in fine dress shops, casting leaves and creating waterfalls resulting in an invite by the Royal Botanical Gardens to show. Her most exciting customer was PBS Home and Garden show host, Ken Beattie of “Get Growing.” It was like having your favorite painter buy your art. After being engrossed in writing fiction for awhile, she has returned to her studio determined to throw acrylics around and dust the watercolour palette off.
