Janette Phillips is based in South Cumbria where she divides her time between painting, teaching within the community and leading art holidays abroad. 'My work tends to be created in series that reflect my interests, both in subject and medium at the time. I am currently experimenting with mixed media and collage as my work becomes more abstract in its response to the initial subject.'
