Janice Opie hails from Ancaster, Ontario but has travelled most of her life, living in several countries including a two year stint of off-shore sailing. She authored a fictionalized version of her trip entitled "Bloody Waters" which is available on Amazon.
Her art disciplines bridged bronze casting, jewellery, fine art and Tibetan thangka painting in a monastery in India. Having settled in Niagara Falls, her focus is watercolour, acrylic and has been bestowed Best of Show, People's Choice. Her art hangs in Canada, USA, Mexico and Netherlands.
Janice Opie has touched upon several disciplines during her life but always returned to her passion of fine art and in particular, watercolour. Her current direction is a loose style with bold strokes, a recipe for either disaster or joy. Exciting minutes in each day.
