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 since 1997 with experience in Graphic Design Freelance, Pre-Press Production, and Fine Art in a variety of media. Since 2006, I’ve been a High School Art Educator and I absolutely love it!

When I’m not in my classroom, I do work on commission. Listed below are the areas
I specialize in. I aim to make the client’s experience a personal one. You are paying for not only the end product, but years of expertise and personal attention to the vision you would like to create for your company/organization/product, etc.

I also am available by appointment for Art Lessons in both digital art and hand-based media.
I can tutor in Photoshop, Illustrator and/or InDesign.

Specialty Areas:
• Logo/Identity Design
• Page Layout (Posters, Business Cards, Postcards, Magazines,
Newsletters, Brochures, Books, etc.)
• Website Design (via WordPress)
• Bottlecap Commissions
• Mixed Media Art
• Photography
