Janine Baldwin

A contour, a curve - the lie of the land

Organic form - Winter 2018/19

Living on the North Yorkshire coast in the UK Janine is surrounded by beautiful moors, woodland and coastline.  These natural environments are a constant inspiration and sketches created directly in the landscape form the basis of her studio pieces.  Recently drawing and collage have been central to her work and Janine uses pastel, charcoal and graphite to explore intuitive mark-making.  Influences include Abstract Expressionism (particularly Willem de Kooning), Joan Eardley and Cy Twombly.

B. 1979, Leeds.  Janine creates paintings, prints and works on paper inspired by land and sea.  She has exhibited extensively across the UK, including with the Royal Academy of Arts, the Society of Women and the Pastel Society.  Janine's work is included in private collections worldwide and has received prestigious awards such as the Arts Club Charitable Trust Award in 2014, the Haworth Prize in 2015 and the Unison Colour Award in 2016.  She is an elected member of the Pastel Society, London. 


Janine is passionate about the conservation of the landscape and since 2006 she has been a conservation volunteer for the North York Moors National Park, working on projects such as tree planting.
