Janna Watson’s abstract paintings are vivid records of her motion as she paints, each gestural mark part of an emotion, a narrative within a piece. Active, almost turbulent combinations of brushstrokes are balanced by open spaces, quiet swoops of color, and places for the eye to rest. There is a delicacy to her unwavering application of paint, a subtlety to her confident movements, and an eloquence with color that results in unexpected and irresistible combinations. Further communicating the emotion within a painting, Watson gives her work  titles that are as elaborate as they are starkly simple, such as “Eating Almonds From A Ziplock Bag.” 

Watson holds a BFA with Honors from Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, ON. She shows her work across the country and has shown at SCOPE Miami Beach, Art Basel, Miami, FL, Seattle Art Fair, Seattle, WA, and as far afield as in Stockholm, Sweden. She has been featured in a variety of publications, and her work is in such collections as Nordstrom, Toronto, ON, Saks Fifth Ave, Toronto, ON, Hudson’s Bay Company, New York, NY, and Aura Condominiums, Toronto, ON.
