artist bio

Janet MacIver was born in Wisconsin and currently lives in Waukesha. She received a B.A. in Art from Carroll College(1983) and a B.S. in Natural Resources from Colorado State University(1987). Since graduating, Janet has taken numerous plein-aire workshops in Arizona through the Scottsdale Artists' School. When in Wisconsin she likes to keep-up her painting skills by studying in James Hempels' fine art classes.

Working outside as a Seasonal Biologist with the Waukesha County Parks for over 20 years has contributed to much of Janet's artistic inspiration. The "hands-on"
work and knowledge with prairie plants is reflected in her oil paintings.

When not on the prairie, Janet has had the opportunity to be an "eco-tourist" traveling to exotic places outside the country. Many images in her paintings are also from these trips.


Recent Honorable Mentions include these paintings:

"Purple Prairie", The Raven Gallery, Pewaukee, WI, 2010
"Galapagos Friend", Waukesha County Court House Show, 2010
"Desert Light", Waukesha County Court House Show, 2007

Affiliations: Janet is a member of the Wisconsin Plein-Aire Painters Association.
