Kelli (Randall) Janson grew up in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. She graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Diploma in Graphic Design in 1993. Upon graduation, Kelli worked as a graphic designer for The Chronicle Herald and Dalhousie Medical School in Halifax, before moving with her family to Digby, Nova Scotia, in 1999. Kelli has since worked as a visual artist from her home studio, focusing primarily on acrylic paintings and pencil drawings. She is a member of the Annapolis Royal Community Arts Council (ARCAC) and a past board member and current member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS). Kelli's paintings and drawings can be found in private collections throughout North America.
My paintings are all inspired by movement and dynamic colour - in bright flowers, Nova Scotian sunsets, local landscapes and the Atlantic Ocean. By using vibrant colours and bold strokes, my work reflects an exaggerated, painterly style - one that I hope conveys what I am both seeing and feeling.
