Painter JanettMarie was born and raised in Decatur, Indiana. After graduation from high school she attended Tri-State University (now Trine University) in Angola, Indiana, where she received her Bachelors of Science Degree in mechanical engineering.

Janett worked three long years in the field of engineering before following her true dream to attend art school. She received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Herron School of Art, a division of Indiana University. Janett’s major at Herron was actually photography, a little mix of the left-brain, right-brain activity. Having only 15 hours left to receive a major in painting she decided it was time to move on!

Janett has displayed her work at the Alliance Gallery of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Columbia Club downtown Indianapolis, in several exhibits at the StutzArtsSpace Gallery and all of the Stutz Artists Open Houses since 2007. She has had her work in galleries located in West Lafayette, IN and Cincinnati, OH.

She has been a Women In The Arts “Featured Artist.”

JanettMarie has been working full time in her Stutz Business Center studio since 2007 and is currently teaching painting part-time for Wine & Canvas.
