Janet Rayner Thorn

Artist Biography

Sooke BC based artist, Janet Rayner Thorn has been honing her painting skills in acrylic and oil mediums for the past several years. Recently transitioning from her career as a psychotherapist to full days in the studio and long daily walks in the rain forests of Sooke has been a perfect union of two passions.

Whether her art is a more pure abstract or more recently impressionist landscape, it is always inspired by her lifelong sense of wellbeing and spiritual connection with the wildness of nature.  By trying to capture the changing nature of light, moods, and seasons; her art is  a reflection of both her own impermanence and the impermanence of the natural world surrounding her.
