Janelle's inspiration comes from the wonderful world she see around her.She loves to capture what might be very ordinary, simple scenes - the things most people see everyday and pass by- and turn them into the extra-ordinary, seeing the beauty that surrounds us if only we will really ‘see’. Janelle especially enjoys images that are somewhat enigmatic, that only hint at what they are and require a little work from the viewer to really appreciate them. She loves patterns and getting in close, just as much as the big wide open view of sweeping landscapes.
