Artist Bio - Janetha Lyon

Born in Zimbabwe in 1969, Janetha from an early age loved art, especially drawing figures and portraits which seemed to come naturally.

After marrying the well-known South African artist, Marc Poisson, over 20 years ago, I have, over time, became adept at painting in oils. I loved painting figures with strong narratives, then branched out to large flower studies, but now I predominantly paint our wonderful Australian birds, trying to capture their beauty in their natural habitat.

Currently I've been enjoying success exhibiting at Artist’s school exhibitions such as Portland NSW, as well as in Thirroul, Scarborough, Wollongong, Shellharbour Village, Stockland Mall Shellharbour, Pyree, Nowra, Berry and Goulburn NSW.

I'm now also becoming well known on social media selling countrywide.

As a mainly self-taught artist, I try to paint to “touch the emotions of persons who enjoy the beauty of our surroundings”, emphasising strong draughtsmanship in a fluid style with a warm, colourful palette.

“My chosen subject matter evokes the charm, colour and excitement I find in nature and which brings the joy that enriches my life, and hope it does yours.”
