I'm an SF Bay Area artist/educator, creating abstract paintings, drawings and mixed media pieces. My focus is human interaction with the environment.
Janet Bogardus is a San Francisco Bay Area painter and mixed-media artist. Since 1989, she has exhibited her work at a variety of venues in California and New York.
Born in Montreal, she spent her early life in many different countries, including Czechoslovakia, Algeria, Canada, Germany, Viet Nam and France. Living in a variety of environments and cultures has attuned her to the ways landscape and history intertwine, a focus which can be seen in all her work.
In 1990, she received an MFA from San Francisco State University with a concentration on printmaking and artist books.
She has taught art classes through Columbia College, Chapman University, and the California Arts Council. Currently she teaches drawing and mixed-media classes at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato, CA.
