Janette Wright


I am a mixed media painter and work intuitively, creating work that is expressionist and abstract. My life experience has many colours - deep blue, thick brown and dense black; yet there are sparks of orange, yellow and green - the colours of hope, delight and surprise.

My work gives shape to my inner spiritual world, feelings and beliefs. My inspiration flows form a place where I feel the immensity of creation, where I am a part of something bigger than myself. Through painting I share the invisible thread of trust I have in the Creator. 

My use of intense colour is intuitive, colour “feels”, it has a “sound” and it calls for a response. I listen to the sounds in the stillness. I am aware of the sun on my arms. I breathe deeply. I tune in to my senses which trigger memories of joy, sadness, wonder and loss - absorbing them into my consciousness. This is what I paint. The recognizable becomes abstract and eventually only an etherial element remains. Silent ghosts, memories, impressions - an essence of me.

My art is for you, the viewer, it is not complicated, it reflects my passion for creating and making, interpreting the world around me. It is a visual journey. I hope to bring colour and positive creative energy into your space - wherever that may be. When the ambiguous, enigmatic elements of my work reach down into your imagination, you may find an echo of yourself there.

NEW RELEASE December 2021


The series titled “A Second Chance to Fly” was birthed when I made a commitment to produce a final body of work, a last and special series of small works, to celebrate 2021 before the year-end.
