Janine M Ferranti
After taking a thirty-year hiatus from my artistic side I began my creative journey again in 2013. It all started with a photograph that my mother gave me of her family. It was a photo of my grandparents and my grandmother's siblings having a picnic in the park. It was a great 3x5 photo taken sometime in the early 70's and I just knew I had to paint it. Six weeks later I finished it and I gave it to my Mom for Christmas. She loved it. It was the painting that changed life for me. You can find that painting "The Cutrones" under the Portraits tab above.
I have always been drawn to realism, hyper-realism and photo-realism. My art is a realistic expression of my environment. Whether it is a breathtaking landscape at sunrise, a quiet alley on a Sunday morning in Tuscany or a shelf of fragile vintage books, it's the colors, textures and movement in the image which stirs the creativity in me.
There is an emotional bond that I have with my paintings because they each hold fragments of my passion to hone my talent. Each one is a part of my evolution as an artist.
I live on Long Beach in New York. I have been married for more than 30 years to my wonderful husband and we have two beautiful children.
They are my life...
but that one painting has given my life fullness.
