Janie O’Farrell’s love of art started at an early age. While in elementary school she was awarded a scholarship to Glassell Junior School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
After graduating from Baylor University with a BFA in Studio Art, she became an instructor at Glassell Junior School and taught drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture to students ages four through eighteen. Also, she taught Outreach Classes at various hospitals and Senior Centers in Houston.
It would be hard for Janie to choose a favorite medium to work in, it seems whatever she is currently working in intrigues her. Lately, landscapes and painting objects from nature in acrylics piques her interest. She likes to capture the essence of a landscape or object in her artwork. Currently, she is excited about using acrylics on reclaimed tin ceiling tiles as well as vintage roof tiles and salvaged wood and breathing new life into
vintage objects. Some of the wood used to make her art has come from the Galveston Historical Society’s Architectural Salvage Warehouse. Her artwork is featured in private collections in Texas and Louisiana.
