Janet Grissom is a central Ohio painter and educator who studied at Ohio University and Ashland University. She also has had additional training at the Ohio State University and Columbus College of Art and Design. After living and working in Mexico as an artist for many years, Janet recently returned to the Columbus area, where she now lives.
Janet works in a heavy impasto technique that employs multiple layers of thick paint. The paint application is accomplished with the use of palette knives, which allows her to not only build up the paint but scrape it back as well. She works spontaneously, always responding to the shapes and forms developing on the canvas.
