Artist Janice Eaton Updike works in pastels creating contemplative landscapes of nature, color and light inspired by the quiet beauty of salt marshes and fields along the east coast. Her still lifes and interiors are studies of natural light transforming objects and space with the interplay of illumination and shadow upon color. Producing art for over twenty years, Janice prefers pastels for the versatility they provide within a range of subtlety. It is her masterful interpretation of this range that make Janices’ art luminous and memorable.

A graduate of Montserrat College of Art and residing in Newburyport, Janices’ works are at home in many New England residences and corporate institutions. Recent exhibitions include The Firehouse Center for the Arts, Newburyport MA; Stonewall Studios, Kittery, ME; Chameleon Gallery, Newburyport, MA; the Hall­Haskell House Gallery , Ipswich, MA; The Kane Gallery, Concord, MA and “Artrageous” , the annual Montserrat College of Art show benefitting student tuition.

Janice Eaton Updike is currently represented at the Connor Summers Fine Arts & Custom Framing Gallery on Market Street in Newburyport, MA
