Janet Tarjan Erl



I love turning ideas into art that inspires. Whether I’m painting a gorgeous landscape from some outdoor adventure I was on, or I’m illustrating a book, creating in different venues enriches my life – and hopefully it will enrich your life and the lives of others. Catch a glimpse of how I see this amazing world. Visit my Fine Art Portfolio to see paintings, and visit my Illustration Portfolio to see my favorite illustrations.
