About Janey

I AM JANEY EMERY

Janey Emery

Born in Narrogin, Western Australia, Janey Emery’s interest in art began as early as 2 years of age and led to art becoming the central element in Janey’s Childhood. Excelling in art throughout her schools years Janey devoted herself to the art course provided by Balcatta Senior High school, where her passion for art only intensified.

Though previously best known for her delightfully tranquil paintings in gouache using a realist style, Janey is adept in all media and many styles. Most recently she has developed a love of oil painting, with the focus on capturing the human spirit and to evoke feelings of nostalgia and affection.

Janey has been painting fulltime since 1991 and has attained a high degree of respect in the art world from peers and art lovers alike. Janey has won numerous distinguished artistic awards for her work and has sold many paintings throughout Australia and overseas. Janey Emery is achieving the recognition her distinctive artistic talents deserve.
