About Janice

Janice Maxwell lives on Russell Island in beautiful Moreton Bay, and when possible works in her studio located at her home. Having travelled extensively both here and overseas, Janice was taken with the landscapes and colours of the interiors, mainly the hues and ochre of the Kimberley region of the Northern Territory and the abundant wildlife found in both Australia and overseas. Her first love is for the classical sculptures of the Renaissance period. Having studied locally, under a South African sculptor for many years, she then furthered her studies with a retired Gold Coast portraiture artist, to get the feel for colours that could translate to ceramics. Janice's work is evolving and changing, the local environment has become inspiring and is a work in progress. While caricatures of frogs, turtles and geckos have been a source of her work, her latest exhibition Shadow Of The Fire is about form, rhythm and motion, emulating perhaps the inspiration found from Henry Moore. Each viewer can interpret the pieces individually.
