Janet Spiegel is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in painting and printmaking. After graduating, Janet moved to New York City where she continued her art studies and began exhibiting her artwork. While living in Charlottesville, Virginia, she won a fellowship in painting from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond.
During her earlier years in New York, Janet Spiegel met her Indian Guru, Swami Muktananda. Janet and her family spent many summers living in the ashram he started in the Catskill Mountains, participating in spiritual practices. Having a need to do more creative work, Janet began doing drawings inspired by these many years of practicing Siddha Yoga Meditation.
Spiegel's current work is influenced by her experiences in Siddha Yoga as well as Indian art, fashion illustration, children’s book illustration, Japanese anime, and contemporary visionary art. The artist's use of simple shapes, patterns, and colors create an ethereal quality taking you to another time and place. Her drawings capture the attention of the sophisticated fashionista as well as an even younger generation.
