JanineFunk

Janine took to art as a small girl in middle-of-nowhere rural Alberta. Having grown up in a world of cattle ranchers and oilfield operations, she thrives on simplicity in art. "I don't get abstract. I like to know what I'm looking at as soon as I look at it," she says. "But I envy some people for their imagination. Like my little brother." What began as cartoon lineart in a FiveStar sketchbook evolved into realistic pencil portraits and pointillism animals. She works entirely in black and white, and rarely strays beyond the use of pencil and ink. Though she has dabbled in paint, photography, digital art and sculpture, she time and again returns to her favourite pencils and pens. With no formal training in art, Janine strives to push herself to continue improving on her foundational talents. While working, Janine enjoys listening to videogame soundtracks or just the sound of the television on the National Geographic channel. She says that the distraction helps her to zone out, so that she doesn't focus on the often slow progress of a piece. JanineFunk joined Society6 on September 9, 2014
