A Look Through Erie's Creative Lens | Janine Utegg

Tuesday Jul 2nd, 2019

Deep empathy and an appreciation for the small joys of everyday life meet the canvas when Janine Utegg creates a color palette of nature and wildlife. A childhood love of sunsets, water scenes, and animals, along with a family of self-made artists propelled her to take those warm feelings and share them with others through paintings on wood, canvas, and stone. She paints with oils, acrylics, and watercolors in Impressionistic/Naturalistic Realism, contrasting light and darkness to create an atmospheric mood that is warm, bold, and colorful.
