Janelle works primarily in the mediums of acrylic painting and photography.

The following three digital photographs were inspired by my love of music. Music has been a part of my life since I was very young. Most of my family was involved with music and I grew up playing the piano. Music was a common interest, and was something that brought us together.

My intent with these photographs was to capture the energy of music. I created these images using the technique of light painting, and also used composite techniques to create my desired final image. The colorful, abstract streaks of light evoke vibrancy and movement, and ultimately capture the energy and beauty that music can evoke. The three prints pictured are each 24”x 36”, Archival Inkjet Photographs on Metallic Paper, Face-Mounted on Plexiglass.
