About Valerie Janes

I live in Jacksonville Florida, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Johns River and beautiful beaches. I am originally from Illinois, graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, I moved to the Chicago area and began my long career as an Art Director. I decided warm weather was more for me so I moved to Jacksonville, FL and worked many years as a Senior Art Director and Creative Manager for national direct mail, marketing company. 

Now, as a freelancer graphic designer, I have made time to get back into fine art. I enjoy painting people and animals due to the many facial expressions and moods, however I'm branching out into other genres.

When I'm not working on painting and graphic design I like to spend time reading, time with family and taking long boat trips. Taking cruises and snow skiing are also high on my list of things to do, and just playing with my Maine Coon cat, Foxy.
