Janis Newton



An artist since 1965, Janis Newton taught high school Art for 29 years-three years in Hillsboro, OR and twenty-six years in Longview, WA.

Janis says,"My main medias are oil painting, sculpture and photography. I am drawn mostly to human form and how light works on my subjects. i have been in several one-person exhibitions and many juried shows.

To accomplish my paintings, I often use the camera as a tool. the images captured on the camera are seldomed used as total compositions but rather as supporting documentation.the camera is for me an informational gathering instrument,my sketchbook. The information they give me allow me to add elements of my personalemotional response to any image created. It is this artistic sovereignty that separates art from photography and separates art from photography and separates creative painting from copied photographs."
