Janna Watson is a shining example of a young emerging artist making a significant mark on the Canadian art scene. Watson has become well-known for her compelling abstract compositions, which use color, line, and energetic brushstrokes to evoke emotion in the viewer. Watson views her work as a visual expression of emotion, externalized through paint. The work possesses an elegant and peaceful energy, created with a carefully balanced pairing of loose painting and gestural mark-making.
Watson’s work has a fresh contemporary impact, which has not gone unrecognized. Her work can be found in several significant collections including the TD Bank Financial Group, CIBC, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Most recently, she was selected to create a magnificent 11x31 foot painting for the feature space in AURA, North America’s largest condominium building with a strong focus on building a meaningful Canadian art collection. The Toronto-based artist has exhibited across Canada and internationally. Watson was a part of the 2015 SOFA Chicago Exposition.
Janna Watson was Foster/White's featured artist at the 2016 Seattle Art Fair.
