CHAIRish 2012: Artist Spotlight, Janet Skinner

Whooo? Whoooo? Who is our latest artist spotlight?  Why, it’s Janet Skinner, who had our young, sweet children in mind when creating this one-of-a-kind owl bench!
Janet originally heard about CHAIRish through the Herron Alumni Association, who has been an invaluable partner to The Villages!
She states:
“Since learning my husband I will be new grandparents this coming January, I have been paying close attention to children’s room designs. I have seen so many adorable designs with owls I just could not resist the temptation to create some whimsical owls for the bench I had selected to paint…my hope is that it will bless its new environment with smiles for years to come!”
Janet started painting as a hobby when she was a young adult. At 35 years of age she enrolled at IUPUI Herron School of Art and Design and received a B. F. A. in Painting in 2001.  She now works from her second story studio space, Skinner Fine Art, at the Creative Arts and Event Center, 2 West Main St., Greenfield, IN. She works primarily in oil, watercolor and pastel in a contemporary-impressionist style.
We think Janet’s owl bench is precious.  Do you know someone that would love this bench, too?
