Janet de Wagt

Janet painting on site


On a five-degree Dunedin afternoon I park outside Janet’s house, slightly early because I want a chance to view her cottage exterior. I’d heard it was spectacularly arty and the hearsay is correct! Within a few minutes Janet pulls up in her truck and we wander indoors with Janet lighting the coal range, organising hot drinks, and feeding Zoe, her foster Norfolk Terrier, before settling down for a chat.

Janet’s spent a busy afternoon working with students at Bathgate Park School where she is based. She has her own studio there – a real meeting place for teachers, students and community groups. They all get the chance to experiment, interact/work with Janet, plus access her materials.
