Janet Ventre

Janet Ventre is a mosaic artist based in Torquay, with a studio at Cockington Court Craft Centre since April 2017. Janet specialises in making glass mosaics and even offers workshops to small groups.

Before Janet had her studio, creating mosaics had been a hobby of hers for over 20 years. Her inspiration began once she completed a 5 week beginners mosaic evening course with Opus Mosaic Exeter.

Janet finds inspiration in the nature all around us, particularly the majestic Torbay landscape and seascape. Her favourite medium to work with is glass on wood. She loves how the light flickers on brightly coloured surfaces.

Over the years Janet has received local commissions such as the Torquay United Football Club mosaic in 2004, which was lottery funded. In recent years, Janet was commissioned to create mosaic panels for Dartmouth swimming pool.
