Artist BIO

Janet Rawlings is an Award-winning Fine Artist using Soft Pastels or Charcoal in soft realism.  Janet has received numerous awards, including “Painting of the Year” from Southern Oregon Society of Artists in 2007 and 2011. 

Her art shows exceptional light, color and strong values. “I have an eclectic taste, so you will find any number of subjects in my portfolio; portraits, still- life, landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, and more.”  Rawlings is also available to paint commissions as requested.

 
Although disabled from fibromyalgia, Rawlings says, “being able to create art is the best therapy I can imagine”.  Rawlings is a member of the Pastel Society of Oregon, Plein Air Painters of Oregon and the SageBrushers Art Society in Bend. 
  
Rawlings tries to display as much of my art as possible through shows in the area, including coffee shops, libraries and the Senior Center along with many specialized shows.  You can also see her art by requesting an appointment at her “in-home” Studio.
