This is what Escape Into Life says about Janet's feature in their new edition:
As artists speak of their work in their own words and without an imposed organization, one is reminded of the particular courage required to evoke and maintain artistic vision. Snell describes the figurative-abstract fusion that has informed much of her work, her historical predecessors and the tradition of controlled randomness that lends a naturalness to the the most exotic imagery. The floating colors seen in her portrait work and the intensity of mood in all her imagery are given a context in this intriguing contribution to the series.
All that, and this painting,too!
