Janna Prinsloo creates work that is inspired by our country — from its people to its shores — and that is relevant and refreshing, in a medium and style that is uniquely her own.
Janna was born and raised in Pretoria where she completed her degree in Fine Art. She is now based in Cape Town where she works as a professional artist. She has participated in exhibitions across the country and was awarded the Vernon John Design Merit Prize as part of the Vuleka Art Competition in 2010.
Many of Janna’s works are of the human figure, which for her is a way to represent hidden truths and personal, internal realities. While she works in the traditional medium of oil painting on canvas or board, her subject matter is often strongly figurative and vibrant. She describes herself as being intrigued by the inner world of individuals, and through her art, depicts people and their interactions with symbolic landscapes.
