Janna Watson is a shining example of a young emerging artist making a significant mark on the Canadian art scene. Watson has become well-known for her compelling abstract compositions, which use colour, line, and energetic brushstrokes to evoke emotion in the viewer. Watson views her work as a visual expression of emotion, externalized through paint. Her work possess an elegant and peaceful energy, created with a carefully balanced pairing of loose painting and gestural mark-making.

Watson’s work has a fresh contemporary impact, which has not gone unrecognized. Her work can be found in several significant collections including the TD Bank Financial Group, CIBC, and the Ritz Carleton Hotel. Most recently, she was selected to create a magnificent 11x31 foot painting for the feature space in AURA, North America’s largest condominium building with a strong focus on building a meaningful Canadian art collection. The Toronto-based artist has exhibited across Canada and internationally.
