Janet Lester, a professional portrait artist, resides at Lake Arrowhead, five miles from Ashland, Kentucky where she works in her private studio to create her award-winning "Portraits With Personality".
She has studied with renowned portrait artist Daniel Green. Also, Lester has studied with nationally known artists Irving Shapiro, William Schultz, and Kevin Mcpherson. Although most of Lester's commissions are for portraits, she works in all media and subjects.
Many of Lester's paintings are included in private and corporate collections across the United States.
She particularly enjoys children's portraits, but she does accept commissions for home and pets. Lester says, "I love people, and I'm very gratified if I can capture a likeness and a glimpse of the subject's personality".
