Janet Ayers

Janet Ayers studied Art, Photography, Art History and Theatre Studies at school. After her Foundation course at West London College she went onto Portsmouth Art College where she gained an BA(hons) in Illustration. After graduation she began a career in Arts Administration and Publishing. When she moved back to Portsmouth in 2002 that's when her community music career took off and the art stuff was put on hold. Printmaking was a way back in for Janet to re-awaken her passion for art, attending courses at the Badger Press, Red Hot Press and Omega Printmakers. She has exhibited with the Society of Woodengravers (as a student entry) and also with Omega Printmakers. Many of you may know Janet for her Community Choir and singing for wellbeing work, circle dance groups and as a performer. Portsmouth University has recognised her contribution to the local creative music community by awarding her an honorary degree (rescheduled for May 2021) . Since lockdown she's been able to carry on some of her singing work online, but not all. So as one door closes for a while, Janet is taking this opportunity to get back into drawing, painting and creating and would like you to join in too.
