Award-winning pastel artist creating portraits, still lifes and landscapes
Janis Langley's pastel paintings have been juried into numerous shows, won awards in Martha's Vineyard/Cape Cod and Texas, and are part of private collections in both areas. Her work is carried at the Old Sculpin Gallery in Martha's Vineyard and has been featured in other galleries on the Cape. She is featured in galleries and shows in Texas in addition.
"Street Artist, St. Germain," pictured here, won 1st place in the portrait category in the 2014 Austin Pastel Society Exhibition.
