Charlotte Artist Janine Medlin

Janine Medlin
Charlotte, North Carolina

“It’s not so much about learning to paint as it is about learning to see.”

This is one of the first lessons of painting that set Janine on the path of learning to see beyond the obvious, into an object or scene.  She employs color, contrast, and texture to reflect what she feels from the subject.

Themes in Janine’s work offer a sense of calm and rest to allow the viewer to enter in to a brief respite from the busy and often chaotic world.  Her composition draws the viewer into the setting.   She creates movement with heavy brush and palette knife strokes, complimented with the play of colors and light and shadow.   

Her work is currently represented by Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, The Atelier Gallery in Charleston, SC, Cecil + Finch in Atlantic Beach, Slate Interiors, and Arthouse Charlotte Art Consultancy.  Her work was twice selected to be in shows at the Duke Mansion.  She has been featured in Charlotte Living Magazine, Charlotte Home and Garden, Scoop Charlotte, and Baby & Child.
