My name is Janine Carter and I am Artsy Jaynine. I love to create and experiment on paper, canvas and in the kitchen! I am an abstract and contemporary artist and art has been my passion since I was very young. At only six years old, I won my first art contest and many years later I went on to be nominated during my senior year as Best Artist at Van Hon High School. In 1999, I graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a B.A. in Studio Art after which I went on to work with community programs and education in the Ford Learning Center at The Nelson-Akins Museum of Art from 2000 to 2013. I have displayed work in the Historic 18th and Vine Jazz District and been a member of various artist groups. In January of 2022 I had my first solo art exhibition at the Joe Herndon Branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library.
My faith is very important to me and influences much of what I create. Several of my paintings come from a deep spiritual place. Often, I include Biblical references and symbols. I love color so my paintings are filled with light, color and movement.
