bio artist statement

Janet Zack creates mixed media assemblages or “shrines” that explore and engage the spiritual nature of life. She examines the intimacies of the inner life whose meaning we decipher through our own personal experience, passions and associations.

She incorporates a wide range of materials and processes including found objects– wood carving, painting, the written word, sewing, and collage among others. This work is the sum of all her design and creative experience. “As I assemble each piece, it becomes an outpouring of my spirit, my faith, my joys and struggles in life.”

Janet earned her BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Ohio with a double major in design and painting. She has exhibited in galleries and shows in Cincinnati, Louisville and Santa Fe. Her work is included in many private collections including The Procter & Gamble Company Collection.

For the last twenty years Janet has worked as a design director and graphic designer for branding and packaging design firms. Her mixed media work not only feeds her creative spirit and soul, but gives her new eyes in which to approach her branding and design business, zackdesign, located in Mariemont, Ohio, where she is a principal and creative director.
