Janine Salzman was born and spent her formative years in the exotic Tunis, Tunisia, in North Africa. Inspired as a child by the mingled sights, sounds and flavors of the French, Arabic and Sephardic cultures of this Mediterranean seaport, she wanted to paint the beauty that surrounded her. Later in Paris where she attended secondary school, she discovered and was captivated by the great French Impressionist masters such as Cezanne, Monet and especially Van Gogh. Finally in Los Angeles years later as a young wife and mother of two daughters she found herself liberated, back in Mediterranean-like sunlight and now exposed to the strong plein air painting tradition of nineteenth and twentieth century California. Now she was determined to follow her dream. She dedicated every moment she could to painting. After years of disciplined hard work and many courses taught by international contemporary masters such as Jove Wang, C. Hartley, J. Mendez, she has fulfilled her dream of becoming a professional artist. Her work is featured in galleries, and in numerous private collections. In addition she has been recognized by her peers with numerous awards for her plein air landscapes, still lives, figures and portraits.
Art is my passion and my gift. And as a gift I honor, cherish and am fully dedicated to always pursuing a higher level of understanding and achievement. It is this passion I try to convey in every painting.
I have studied with J. Mendez, Jove Wang, C. Hartley,K. Mcpherson, M. Daily, N. Muller, C. Anderson , S. Burdick,,J.Cosby, R. Rencher and many other workshops.
