If you were to pin point a place that constantly inspires Janelle, it would be nature, it’s where she flourishes. Her organic style and unconventional mediums reflect what being a native Californian means to her, and the natural beauty the state has to offer. Her style is raw and organic, creative, and natural. And her passion and heart lies in it as well – always striving to be sustainable by using locally sourced materials in her creations and in her home studio.
Her immense attention to detail, along with her incredible eye for color evolved throughout her fine art education, which eventually culminated in a trip halfway across the world. During her time in Italy, Janelle studied color theory, design, sculpture, and painting, but she also developed a sense of adventure and a thrill for seeking out beauty in the natural world. Her experiences there inspired much of what she now applies to her floral arrangements and creation of textile designs.
As we journey into Janelle’s creative studio and go behind the scenes of what inspires her, let the images be a feast for your eyes. And allow her story be an example of what happens when you dream big, explore and dare to grow out of our comfort zone.
