Fine Art -Artists at work in the "Heart of Matlacha"


Original Fine Art & Jewelry- Voted Best Art Gallery in Matlacha 


Wonderful friends, great ideas, and retirement have created a passion in her to create beautiful art that touches the emotions of the viewer.  The beautiful weather in Southwest Florida  gives her the perfect setting for designing pieces that are whimsical and coastal. Each piece is created using reclaimed glass or jewelry to truly create one-of-a-kind works.

With a background in Chemical Engineering and business ownership, she raised a family in Lexington KY with her husband, J.D.  Having recently retired to sunny Cape Coral, she has time to hone her artistic skills and delights in every creation.  She also enjoys boating, kayaking, biking and scuba diving.

Janet hopes you find enjoyment in her artwork that celebrates living in paradise, Southwest Florida.
