Janine Reeves

Janine Reeves was born in London on 13 February 1960, daughter of Alan John Reeves. She was educated at Bungay Grammar School 1972-1976 and after a career in banking, studied Fine Art at the Art Academy London 2011-2013, under the guidance of Robin-Lee Hall (born 1962), of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. Following completion of her studies at the Art Academy she secured a scholarship on the 'plein-air' Rome Art Program run by Carole Robb in 2012, winning the Jack Miller Award for Best Painting and was invited on four further scholarships in following years. During her involvement with the Rome Art Program, she served as a host to visiting board members and as a mentor/teaching assistant to each year’s subsequent intake of students. After spending six years painting in Italy, Janine returned to the England and now focuses on local art using watercolour as her preferred medium with colour and emotion to guide her in a more abstract take rather than traditional work. Her abstract work is influenced by Kandinsky and Hockney as well as the sculpture of Henry Moore and the classical artwork of antiquity. She works from her studio at Southwold, Suffolk and has exhibited widely including at Saatchi Art in London and Buckenham Galleries, Southwold.
