Born and raised in the rural northern Florida, Janis Brothers finds a wealth of inspiration from her surroundings and life experiences. She explores human experiences of loss and death using video, installation, sculpture, ceramics and drawing. Her inspiration comes from her rural culture, family structure and nature. Through narratives and haunting aesthetics, her art examines the complexity of these universal themes.
Brothers holds a BS in Interior Design and a MFA in Studio Art from Florida State University. She has worked as an artist and designer for more than thirty years. Her work has been exhibited nationally in juried, invitational and solo exhibitions including the Appleton Museum of Art Biennial Florida Installation Art, Camera USA National Photography Award and Exhibition, Boca Raton Museum of Art All Florida Juried Competition and Art of the South at the University of Memphis. Honors include the Elizabeth Morse Genius Memorial and Ru Israels awards from the Florida Artist Group and Best in Show at the Valdosta National. Brothers is a member of the Florida Artists Group and actively participates in community venues, publishes articles, and judges and organizes exhibitions.
