Janna Watson’s abstract paintings capture vivid records of her motions as she paints, each gestural mark contributing to a narrative within the piece. Active brushstrokes are balanced by open spaces, quiet swoops of color, and places for the eye to rest. Washy fields of color contrast with deeply saturated strokes and vertical lines which hint at foreground and background. Watson has shared that her work is greatly influenced by the role her grandfather, also an artist, played in her development as a painter, saying "I am continuously inspired by [Arthur’s] fascination to make clashing colors work. Through his lessons, I remember him telling me 'I love things harmoniously ugly.' These words have stuck with me throughout my practice."

Janna Watson holds a BFA with Honors from Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, ON. She shows her work across North America, and at Okanagan Heritage Museum, Kelowna, BC;  She has been featured dozens of publications, and her work is in collections such as Nordstrom, Toronto, ON; Saks Fifth Ave, Toronto, ON; Hudson’s Bay Company, New York, NY; and The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, ON.
