JanyRae often make detours on roads less traveled for subject matter. Over the past few years JanyRae has established herself as a painter in the west. Using a brush and palette knife she fills her compositions with bold strokes of rich pigment, vibrant lighting, and rough texture. JanyRae’s depth and movement are created by allowing the original undertones to seep through.
Her 1895 studio in downtown Boise, Idaho is where she paints full time. When not on the road you can find her there working on clouds, landscapes, trees, wild life and folks she meets along the way.
JanyRae Seda’s work tells a story, expresses joy, and makes you smile.
