Janette Stiles began painting at a
very early age--3 to be exact when
she painted her mother's dresser a
rainbow of colors. As a young adult,
she presented her work in many
local shows and held her first solo
exhibition at age 17. After 2 years at
Washington State University in the
Fine Arts Program followed by studies
at Burnley Art School, Janette began
working as a graphic designer.
Painting whenever possible, the artist
amassed a large body of work.
The collection of landscapes,
seascapes, animal and floral paintings,
colorscapes and mixed media grew to
be enormous and in 2000, after nearly
a lifetime of painting, Janette Stiles
and husband Joe formed The Stiles
Collection. The company maintains
over 600 original paintings,drawings
and other works of art. You will see
the influence of 18th and 19th
century masters in the pastoral
English countryside paintings.

series on "Endangered Species and
Animals at Risk"; plus the latest series
of "Hero Dogs"--22 paintings inspired
by the captivating stories of these
The artist paints primarily in oils,
acrylics and pastels, but has also
works in other types of media.
"My work is not only a pleasure, it is a
necessity. Painting fills me with a
sense of purpose and accomplishment.
For me, it's all about color; creating a
scene, mood or feeling using the
millions of colors in our world. My
objective is to transport the viewer to
a place where he or she experiences
something new, uplifting and unique."
Two-time Winner of the National Arts
Program Award, plus many other
awards, Janette currently lives with
her husband and Siberian/Shepard dog
Rollie in Tacoma, Washington. They
spend as much time as possible at
their Lake Cushman cabin, located in

inspirational in the creation of the
artist's landscape paintings.
