Janice Lochhead is a contemporary artist whose studio is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Each piece she creates is inspired by something different and distinct. Her clients are art collectors who extend throughout North America and as far away as the Middle East. Janice has the most fun letting go with abstract art, it’s a time for her to be free of detail and let her mood dictate the piece. She uses a wide variety of mixed media to create dramatic paintings full of texture and colour.
Her ink work comes from inspiration by nature and a softer approach. The hand crafted original ink pieces are made with the finest quality ink and created on archival paper called Yupo. Yupo paper is made out of a synthetic material that is waterproof. The ink glides across the paper and settles on the surface in its raw state. The Yupo is then mounted onto a birch panel and finished off with a coat of ArtResin to give it a high gloss shine.
Her resin work is inspired by water, a view from above or sitting on a beach. There is just something about water that relaxes the soul. Each layer of resin that is added to a piece gives depth and interest. Using resin is all about the flow of movement, there are no brushes involved in the process. When it is poured onto the wood panel it is the consistency of honey and can be manipulated by a variety of techniques. The resin that is used is a product called ArtResin. ArtResin is a durable epoxy that is non-toxic and has a non-yellowing stabilizer added for long-term performance. Some pieces have 3 layers of resin while others have up to 6; it all depends on the desired final result.

My journey as an artist started in 2010 as a Cake Designer. I have been featured and credited across North America in a variety of media articles. In 2014, expanding on my experiences and successes with cake design I transitioned into the world of fine art. I am mostly self-taught though I do take advantage of classes through art stores and online. I grew up in BC and moved to Alberta 22 years ago. Artists run through my family and it seems natural that I would become one myself, although I did not discover my passion for art until I became an adult. It has brought so much to my life and I am thrilled to share it with you.
