A longtime resident of Denmark, Maine, Janet Gill is largely self-taught in the area of pastels and she has been doing it for about 15 yrs. She works on location as well as from photos and is drawn to the rich, pure color of this medium and the energy that can be achieved in its application. Color is what excites her first in a landscape, but she also tries to bring an awareness of the energy that is present in the scene. She loves being outdoors and the inspiration for her art comes from the natural beauty that surrounds her. Throughout Janet’s life, music has been another area of expression. Trying to express meaning and
emotion through music as been a lifelong goal. She has been singing and playing the guitar since her teens but has only started to write her own songs in the last few years. For seven years she was the
vocalist in a local jazz ensemble and also sang in the cabarets at the Denmark  Arts Center. For her, 
painting and music have many parallels – color, emotion, rhythm, stories.
