The artist — Janet Parke

This is surely the most difficult (and least interesting) page for me to write. It really doesn't matter who I think I am, although this recent creative rendering of my artistic brain has a few clues.

Self-portrait

Hopefully, if you look around this website for a while you'll formulate your own opinion.

There are a few childhood pictures of me here, and at least one semi-recent one squirreled away on these pages somewhere. But it's not really important what I look like. I could tell you what I do for a living or where I live or my age or my astrological sign. But all of these things are boundaries, not descriptions. I would rather not be defined by a profession, city, number, or formation of stars.

I could tell you that I am an "INFP" — having searched the web in the dark hours of night to find out what the heck that meant. I found these frighteningly accurate descriptions, but again, they're just my own perceptions of myself.

Probably the best way to get to know me is through my art. I think it more eloquently expresses who I am -- my beliefs, my hopes, my dreams, my fears, my struggles, my passions, and my joys -- than anything I could ever write in words. So have a look around and come to your own conclusions.
