Stever is a life-long artist and illustrator with a long list of
commissions and credits, honors and awards.
The artist received
her B.F.A. in Illustration from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia,
where she earned the Senior Illustration Award and graduated as
valedictorian of her class. She has many years of experience
freelancing and has had several staff illustration positions.
Clients over the years for whom she has created artwork have included
Byers' Choice, Cherrydale Farms, Rodale, Reader's Digest, Converting, The
Bradford Exchange, BonArtique, Ceaco, Carson Industries, Bucilla,
Evergreen, Franco, Transpac, Thirstystone, Springbok, Hoffmaster, Roman and many others.
The rare but interesting staff positions were an exciting challenge for
Janet. Though there may have only been one illustrator on staff it
was often necessary to make it appear as if the studio used many different
illustrators. This broadened her imagination and versatility and
brought her to a level of expertise in a wide variety of media,
techniques, and style.
The artist works almost entirely with non-electronic media. She
loves the feel of pulling paint across paper and believes the freshness of
hand-created art cannot be matched.
Janet attributes her talent to the Lord and knows it is purely and simply
a gift. When she's not drawing Janet enjoys Bible study, singing in
her church choir and ringing in the hand bell choir. She enjoys a
good book and a walk in the woods. The artist and her husband have
two sons whom she considers to be the most wonderful and creative things
she's ever done.
delighted to be able to make the Christmas, holiday, seasonal and
inspirational works of this remarkably creative artist
available for licensed products on an exclusive basis.
