About the Artist:
Janet Mustin became interested in painting when she took her first lessons in middle school. After graduating from Swarthmore College she took painting courses at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and the Chicago Art Institute, and later at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA. She found great inspiration in an Art Appreciation course at the Barnes Foundation.
Janet served as a volunteer art therapist for many years with Tri County Fountain Center in Lansdowne, PA, as well as for the Child Guidance Clinic in Heidelberg, Germany, where the family lived for five years. The experience of working with mental patients led to a deep interest in the inner meanings of symbolism in the visual world and in the value of painting as an avenue to self expression.
An active Quaker throughout her adult life, Janet is a member of Lansdowne Friends Meeting.
