Janette Hayhoe

Biography

Janette Hayhoe is a Toronto born oil painter who works in the classical realist style. Her work seeks to pay homage to the tradition of fine craftsmanship through careful rendering and attention to detail. The viewer is invited to ponder the inherent beauty in nature and everyday scenes and objects.

Janette studied drawing and painting in the traditional 'atelier' style, acquiring knowledge of time honoured, old masters' techniques through studies with various artists both in Canada and in France. This traditional approach is based on careful observation and understanding of nature, and is applied to a variety of subject matter, working always from life. Janette produces still lives, landscapes and portraits using this method.

Since studying in France, Janette now paints and teaches both in Canada and France and has works in private collections internationally.
