My name is Janet Caruana and I started painting 15 years ago, starting with folk art and then progressing to other art forms. I use mainly acrylics but do dabble in watercolour and experiment with mixed media. I like using inks, watercolour pencils and different mediums, anything I feel will give me the effect I am looking for. Nothing is discarded if I feel it is worth a try.
