Artist Statement:

I want to show the beauty and personality of all 4 legged and feathered friends out there in the world! Giving dignity to these wonderful living creatures………………janice serilla

QUOTEYour farm animal paintings will historically be known as your farm animal period just like Picasso had his blue period.
There is something captured in your chickens/roosters that transcends it out of the feel of the farm, to the stature of Mona Lisa.

You give the birds dignity. – James Serilla (my uncle!)

Published by Janice Serilla Art and Design

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
