The Artists of Muskoka

Janine Marson

2-6 West Street North
Huntsville, ON, P1H 2B6

Janine Marson is home-grown talent. Her whole being is immersed in the sights, sounds, smells, taste and touch of Muskoka. Her parents moved to Huntsville in 1960 to buy a tourist resort and provide a better life. It affected her childhood years more than she could have imagined – catching frogs, climbing trees, swimming with her Labrador retriever and canoeing on the Oxtongue River. Now, through her art, Janine shares her experiences of the subtleties of light, colour and splendour of the seasons. The rush of mist on her face while sketching at her favourite spot, Ragged Falls, also has left an indelible mark on her.

Since the age of eight she has wanted to be an artist, and now she is living the dream. Janine’s productive career spans more than 30 years as a professional artist and instructor in Muskoka and Toronto. She is a graduate of Design Art at Georgian College and received her B.A. Fine Art from the University of Guelph. She was chosen to represent her beloved Muskoka at the One of a Kind Spring Show and Sale in 2011, and has painted murals for the Group of Seven Outdoor Gallery in Huntsville.

Janine’s deep connection to the Muskoka region, coupled with her strong painting and colour skills, allows her to fully express her love of the land, and fuels her desire to preserve and protect it for future generations.
