Award winning artist, Janet Iffland is known for her rural landscape paintings in oil and acrylic. She is drawn to the New England landscape and paints on location as well as from photos in her studio. In her paintings she hopes to bring to you the lights and shadows of color reflected in nature. She is drawn to her subject by the light cast upon the object. Janet grew up in Northwest Connecticut and is fortunate to be surrounded by the beautiful farms, shoreline, and rural landscape that are part of her paintings. She is mainly a self -taught artist and has studied with award winning artists in Connecticut. Janet also paints home portraits and other commissioned requests.
