Janet Grismer Coleman

I continually seek to grow and create as an artist. Most of my inspiration comes from my hikes with my husband.  I live with my husband Jim, 2 adult children nearby and dog Jojo. I love to watch the four seasons pass thru our native plant yard.  

My latest pieces are birds which give me great joy as they sing each morning in the garden.  I am grateful for all the fine art teachers who have taught me,  my husband and 2 children, family and friends who have supported my art vision.   Degree: BS in Education and Family Social Science University of Minnesota    COURSEWORK: Richard Knottingham, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Textiles, 1977 Richard Abel, University of Minnesota, Textiles 1976 Bill Hinz of Chicago Art Institute at Miami College of Art and Design Oxford Ohio, Design and Direct Dyes on Fabric Warm Sally Brown Group Discussion Sessions, WarmGallery: 1985 George Morrison and Hazel Belvo at Grand Marais Art Colony: 1984  Phyllis Hiawa:  Edina Art Center: Watercolor 1984 Judy Roode:  Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Life Drawing:1984 Renee Travis Reilly:  Internship in Watercolor: 1983 and 1984 David Feinberg: University of Minnesota Drawing: 1982 David Feinberg : University of Minnesota Design: 1982 Eugene Larkin: University of Minnesota Design: 1982 Sandra Muzzy Artist: 2010 thru 2016  Summer Watercolor Workshops   Cheng-Khee Chee :  Bloominton Art Center  4 day workshop Lian Quan Zhen:  Missoula Montana 4 day workshop 2015 Karen Knutson:  Watercolor 4 day Workshop 2015   HISTORY: 1975 -1985 Specialized in batik and hand painting on fabrics including silk.
