Hi, my name is Janice Lazzarich. I was born in Cape Town, South Africa. I have travelled and hiked extensively in Africa’s wildest places and have experienced the grand wonders of the African bush and it’s wildlife.
I've had a 23 year career as a Graphic Designer working in Ad Agency's.
I have spent the last 17 years painting in oils. I love the challenge of portrait and figure work. I love the colours of still life. I love the atmosphere of landscape. I love our special wonderful wildlife. I love abstract when I'm stuck or blocked......it is always intriguing to see what happens on the canvas.
I try to paint from life, where possible, as it's easier to get the essence of a person or the atmosphere of a place when confronted with the reality. I now live in Cheshire, England with my son and husband, and the resident fox, swans, ducks and geese.
