A true “resident of the world”, Rumanian-born artist Janinne Alter draws inspiration from her surroundings wherever she sets her easel. Janinne’s family immigrated to Venezuela in 1960 where she spent her young adult years before moving to New York City.

In New York, Janinne began a career teaching English as a second language. Although she spent time developing her appreciation for art and loved the pace and excitement of ‘The City’, she longed for the beautiful colors of the tropics. In 1980, she moved to south Florida, an act that unleashed Janinne’s passion for painting.

Janinne draws inspiration from her travels throughout the world—and her personal journeys throughout life. Her work captures landscapes that will elevate the human spirit and provide a sense of joy, peace, and comfort to the observer.

A recent series has taken Janinne in a new direction translating raw emotion in a series of acrylics.

Observing the world as a way to learn about life, Janinne strives to capture the landscape around herself as she perceives it, through her senses and feelings rather than purely as an illustration of reality.

She was inspired by the French post-impressionists and fauvist painters, such as Van Gogh, Cezanne, Vlaminck, and Derain, as well as German expressionist painters such as Emil Nolde and Lovis Corinth.
