Brighton-born Janet Mercer has always loved the creative arts; a passion for colour and design has been a constant theme in her life and career.
In the 1980s, Janet studied for a BA (Hons) in Textiles at Loughborough College of Art & Design. Intending a career as artist and teacher, in her final year at Loughborough, her path changed direction when she won a major Royal Society of Arts Bursary Award for automotive textile design. As a consequence, Janet was invited to apply to the prestigious Royal College of Art (RCA) in London, where she became the first female graduate in the Transport Design. In 1988, Janet gained a Masters Degree from the RCA, specialising in computer-aided-design, with two final projects developing colour, material & lifestyle concept designs for Concorde (British Airways) and for MG Sports Cars.
Business Experience – During her twenty rewarding years in the automotive design industry, Janet became manager of MG Rover Group’s Colour, Trim & Graphics Department, based in Birmingham. During this time she nurtured her personal interest in creative photography, painting and digital design.
The family business has evolved in distinct, yet closely connected areas. Piscea consults on advanced colour concepts, image & lifestyle trends for the product development industry and works in close collaboration with clients. This, in turn, dovetails with Janet’s creation of contemporary, on-trend artwork for greeting cards, prints, canvases and products.
Piscea Signature Floral Artworks and cards are sold in galleries, garden centres and department stores. Janet also produces fine art prints and cards to order and can supply an exclusive range of canvases, including her best selling canvas, Dahlia Eclipse, direct to customers.
Piscea Signature Art – With bases in England and New Zealand, Janet derives creative inspiration from the flora and fauna within these beautiful, scenic countries. She responds to the patterns of nature, seasonal influences and intense light situations. Using a combination of photographic and painting techniques, Janet seeks to create distinctive and desirable fine art. She captures striking colour moods, sometimes abstract, sometimes photorealistic. Artworks are available as large canvases, framed images and cards.
