Janis Fitch

Janis Galbraith Fitch received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a concentration in painting and drawing, from the University of Delaware in 1979. She is originally from Teaneck, New Jersey but has spent most of her adult life in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Summers have always been spent in the little town of North Truro in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. More recently, Janis moved to the gulf coast town of Mexico Beach, FL where she now lives and paints in her home studio.

Fitch paints in oils, using intense color to interpret what she sees. Her subjects of choice are the Holstein dairy cows of Lancaster County, PA and the landscapes and seascapes of Cape Cod with its beautiful skies and warm sunlight. Her trademark cows often show up on the Cape beaches!

Janis has participated in many group and juried shows. One of her first awards was in 1983, when she took first place in the Chester County Art Association Mixed Media Show. She began having one-woman exhibits in 1986. Janis is one of the artists featured in the book “Speaking for Themselves; The Artists of Southeastern Pennsylvania”, by Daphne Landis, and also in the recently released “100 Artists of the Brandywine Valley” by Catherine Quillman. She was also chosen to create the cover art for the Chester County Art Association’s 1996 Invitational Gala brochure, and was the featured artist in the 1991 Historic Yellow Springs Art Show.

Janis continues to show her work in solo and group shows.
