Janet Pierce's painting is informed by emotional landscapes evoking the Scottish Highlands, the rugged seascapes of Donegal and the boglands of Ireland. Romantic in character, her hunger for transcendence is realized through this contemplation of landscape. The locations she paints are dream places, the spirit rendered in the form of mist, sea, sky and mountains: each one 'a placeless heaven rather than a heavenly place' [as Seamus Heaney has said of the spaces imagined by Patrick Cavanagh].

Pierce has exhibited extensively throughout Ireland, the UK, the USA and beyond. Her work is included in several public, private and corporate collections including the Arts Council of Ireland and the Arts Council of N.Ireland. She has won many major bursaries from the Arts councils of Scotland, N.Ireland and Ireland and recently won awards from the Sanskritti Foundation in New Dehli, India and the Fundacion Valpairiso, Spain. She is an elected member of the Aosdana, and is represented by Taylor Galleries, Dublin.
