Janet Bell’s paintings are both engaging and playful with their detailed and colourful nature. Her work shows a unique take on the English seaside, traditionally British but with a Scandinavian twist; her Danish roots evident in the colours and composition so prevalent within Nordic illustration today. Janet began painting professionally in 2001 having studied textiles specialising in machine embroidery and screen printing. She started painting from a studio in Chester, supplying original paintings and prints to galleries across the UK. Her work became more focussed on the British coastline and was inspired by trips to English seaside towns and memories of playing on the beaches of northern Denmark where her mother was raised. In 2007, Janet moved to the Isle of Anglesey with her husband, Sean, to open the Janet Bell Gallery in the picturesque seaside town of Beaumaris. The intention was to sell a few prints from a working studio space, but the small side street studio quickly relocated to become a High Street success due to the popularity of Janet’s unique, happy, colourful paintings of Anglesey.
