Mixed Media - Photography
Neil's Harbour is a small fishing village in northern Cape Breton Island, in Victoria County, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is located between Ingonish and Dingwall, just south of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Artifacts in the area indicate that Neils Harbour may have been originally settled by the French. Neil's Harbour is named after a man by the name of Neil McLennan. The first school in Neils Harbour was constructed in 1878. Entrance to the village is by a side road off the Cabot Trail, which encircles the northern part of the Island. The economy is mostly supported by fishing, including lobsters and crabs.
A little about me:
My name is Janet but I go by Jann, and I am originally from Ontario, Canada and have lived on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, since 1985.
I love the seacoast and mountains, so many of my photos are from British Columbia, Alberta, Vancouver Island, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island. My main photo themes are sea, coastal,villages, people, portraits, mountains, trees, lakes, waterfalls, flowers, nature,wildlife, birds, animals, landscapes, sunsets, and the great National Parks of Canada such as Jasper,Banff, Waterton, Cape Breton Highlands, Yoho, Glacier, Kootenay,Mt. Robson, Strathcona and others.
In the art world, I was initially trained as a Commercial Artist and Illustrator and eventually explored many other methods of art/style as well as other mediums. I work in pencil, ink, acrylics, watercolor and oil pastels. I have also enjoyed mosaic design and application, floor murals, wall murals, collapsible screens, floor cloths, graphic design. Explored sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, hand painted furniture, refinishing old frames with gold leaf or faux finishes, interior design and interior decorating.
With the advent of digital cameras I came to really enjoy photography both as an artistic expression as well as a foundation for capturing interesting and exciting compositions to be painted later.
My recent creative endeavour was graduating from a certified Cosmetology Program (hairstylist and esthetics) in March 2009.
