Janet Hayes has had eight solo exhibitions in Australia and her artworks have been published in magazines and books nationally, and internationally.
Portraits, figure studies and still life are predominant in her work and she is currently working on pastels in her series of Ballet and Dance, and her Nature series, as well as her ongoing series of figures; she uses the soft, sensuous attributes of pastel to express those qualities in the nudes. She is inspired to occasionally paint landscapes which often incorporate lotus and waterlilies.
As an artist who shares her skills Janet is a sought after teacher for art classes, workshops, demonstrations and as a judge of art shows and competitions.
Janet was a founding member and first Vice President of the Pastel Society of Victoria, Australia. She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and an honorary member of both the PSVA and the Societe des Pastellistes de France.
