About

Janet Galasso
Artist | Designer | Educator

Welcome to my site! Please take a look around. You’ll find I have an eclectic variety of artwork.

I’ve been working professionally in the Arts since 1997 with experience in Graphic Design Freelance, Pre-Press Production, and Fine Art in a variety of media. I’ve most recently started to focus on the Art / Craft Fair Market and keeping an active Etsy Shop. Since 2006, I’ve been a High School Art Educator and I absolutely love it!

After nearly 12 years of teaching High School Art, I’ve become jack of all trades! I tend towards Digital Art, Photography, and Mixed Media but have been known to do other things too. Lately I’ve been getting back into Photography. I also have an affinity for repurposing objects and making them more beautiful. 🙂

My site is an outpouring of my creativity when I’m not teaching. I’m slowly adding to it and I take commissions as well. Have an idea? Let’s see if we can make it happen together!

Please check out my social media for updates to find out what’s going on in my studio!
