The Blue Album
2004
Janette Stiles began painting at a
very early age--3 to be exact when
she painted her mother's dresser a
rainbow of colors. As a young adult,
she presented  her work in many
local shows and held her first solo
exhibition at age 17. After 2 years at
Washington State University in the
Fine Arts Program followed by studies
at Burnley Art School, Janette began
working as a graphic designer.
Painting whenever possible, the artist
amassed a large body of work.
The collection of landscapes,
seascapes, animal and floral paintings,
colorscapes and mixed media grew to
be enormous and in 2000, after nearly
a lifetime of painting, Janette Stiles
and husband Joe formed
The Stiles
Collection.
The company maintains
over 1,000 original paintings, drawings
and other works of art. You will see
the influence of 18th and 19th
century masters in the pastoral
English countryside paintings.
The Online Gallery includes a special
series on "Endangered Species and
Animals at Risk"; plus the series of
"Hero Dogs"--22 paintings inspired by
the captivating stories of these
amazing dogs.
The artist paints primarily in oils,
acrylics and pastels, but has also
works in other types of media.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"My work is not only a pleasure, it is a
necessity. Painting fills me with a
sense of purpose and accomplishment.
For me, it's all about color; creating a
scene, mood or feeling using the
millions of colors in our world. My
objective is to transport the viewer to
a place where he or she experiences
something new, uplifting and unique."

Four-time Winner of the National Arts
Program Award, plus many other
awards, Janette currently lives with
her husband in Tacoma, Washington.
They spend as much time as possible
at their Lake Cushman cabin, located
in the mountains of the Olympic Rain
Forest. The wilderness area has been
inspirational in the creation of the
artist's landscape paintings.

Janette Stiles has a Bachelor's Degree
in Art History and a Bachelor's Degree
in Marketing.
