Interests and Personality

BiographyBorn in Germany and immigrated with parents to Toronto in 1955, where I later worked as a teacher for 20 years. I came to B.C. in 1990, settling in White Rock, where I worked for 10 years as a school counsellor in Surrey. Moved to Gabriola, "Isle of the Arts". in 1997 as a weekend resident resulting in retirement in Dec 2001. Retirement bought with it a new focus on self-expression and creativity on many levels. It was finally time to explore my suppressed love of art. I enroll in many art courses annually including mixed midia, collage and acrylic. Currrently, I reside in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island where I continue to explore new directions.

Nice Work Janni.


Hey Janni. Susie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. So leave a post on her board if you have time. Put a smile on her face when she gets home from the hospital. L John TOX

Great works Janni. I really like 'JUST DUCKY'. The thick paint is what talks to me. Also, 'Angelwings' is very nice. Hope you are enjoying the site. ~Mare
