Janet Cook art – I enjoy creating art using a variety of mediums, such as acrylic & oil paint, wax, clay, wood, metal and various textural products and accessories, so I think of myself as a Mixed Media & Assemblage artist. Although I loved art at school, I received little encouragement, and then my work & family commitments distracted me from most kinds of artistic endeavour. However, in my later years, college courses re-awakened my interest. When I’m painting, assembling or sculpting, I can only think of the work at hand, so it’s a welcome distraction from the worries of the world! A lot of my work appears to have a dark side, which may come from my anxious nature, but I’ve always been fascinated by ancient, or even alien cultures, and I think my work reflects this.
