Kathleen Janis is a twenty five year old painter/illustrator from Chicago now living in South Florida. She states, "I had never intended to pursue a hobby or career in making art.. I had taken a couple art courses in high-school but it wasn't until 2014 that I began to communicate myself through art". Kathleen Janis describes her vision as an artist as, "to capture the essence of humanity- of love, lust, blessings, curses, & the passing strange in everyday life". A lot of the characters in her paintings embody these motifs along with accompanying her personal experience of life itself. Janis has participated in a couple live art performances in Wynwood, Miami and it is her goal as an artist to expand globally.
