Janet Weaver was born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina. Living in such an amazing place, she learned to appreciate the beauty of her surroundings and seeks to convey that appreciation in her paintings. “The subjects I enjoy painting are people, places, and animals that stir a feeling or evoke a memory in me,” says Weaver. “Painting is a way for me to share my thoughts and feelings with others.” After living in different areas of the country because of her husband’s job, they then settled in Knoxville. She is a mother of three children and grandmother of four. After her children were grown, she decided to make art more of a priority.
