Janet Matthews lives and works in suburban Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. A former high school art teacher, Matthews rediscovered photography, when she was assigned to teach Photo 1 classes as part of her course load.
From: Washington, DC, USA.
Shows: Handcolored photographs.
Matthews has received bachelor degrees in Studio Art, with a focus on drawing & painting, and in Art Education from the University of Maryland.
She has integrated her background in drawing and painting with photographic methods by using extensive post-darkroom manipulation of her images, using colored pencil, collage and varnishes.
“I am drawn to using hand-applied emulsions as a means of directly engaging with my images and exploring their potential.”
