Self Portrait 36 x 48 Oil on Canvas

      Janelle Murraine is a self-taught artist who has for the past four years been mentored by many amazing artists, but mostly dedicating her time and effort to learning and practicing as much as possible on her own.  Leaving a career in the behavioral health and social services arena behind her she is devoted to creating an artistic experience that fully explores her unique sense of creativity and artistry.  This is depicted through the combinations of colors, the sense realism, and symbolism inspired by the raw, vulnerable, spiritual, and surreal nature of humanity. 

     Janelle's works have been accepted by Lemoyne Arts Museum, the Virgin Islands Council of the Arts, 621 Art Gallery, & Havana Main Street’s Plein Aire Annual Event and AHA (Artist Helping Artist).  Her work is currently featured at the Omega Lamplighters Tallahassee and at the Goodwood Museum’s Soulful Restaurant. She is currently a freelance artist accepting commissions and participating in local art exhibitions.
