Janie Lowe received her Masters of Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After freelancing as an illustrator for publications such as The New York Times and Random House Books, she moved to Portland, Oregon to live between the mountains and the coast.
Janie co-founded YOLO Colorhouse, an eco-friendly, architectural paint company with curated color palettes. As Creative Director, she designed the harmonious palettes in the Colorhouse collection. From 2005 – 2015, Janie focused on building the YOLO Colorhouse brand, and put painting aside.
After a 10 year hiatus from her personal work, Janie is back in her studio, and painting again. She is inspired by what brought her to the West – the mountains and the coast.
