Janet SHEARER

Janet Shearer is a mural artist who moved to Cornwall after a visit in the late 1970s. She lives at Withiel, near Bodmin.

Shearer studied at Kingston Art School (now Kingston University). A career as a photographic model took her abroad and introduced her to the world of TV commercial production. Eventually she became a scenery painter, working in film studios in and around London. In 1983 she branched out into mural painting and has turned her skills to equestrian painting and portrait commissions.
