Janelle Matus is a mixed media artist living on the land at Rockley, painting in a contemporary style on canvas and board to capture the beauty and energy of the garden and bush landscape.
On walks over ‘ Tara ’ our property I find beauty in textures created by nature, wear and decay. Mixed with the interplay of human, plant and bird life the landscape becomes full of immense emotion detailing a great kaleidoscope of raw beauty and colour.
My other source of inspiration comes from my dreams and imagination.
I am an artist who reaches beneath reality’s surface to interpret the hidden mystery of my artistic intuition producing art in all its form and expression. The many stories, memories and shadows from childhood talk to me challenging me to express the image
on canvas. I strive to convey that sense of place by capturing its fleeting moments.
As an artist I am captivated by the power of sound, words, colour and shapes that surround me. I am passionately dedicated in search of new ideas to express my inspiration of love and beauty through my art work.
