Have you ever randomly typed something into Etsy just to see what would come up? I do this a lot with my favourite books and authors. So when I typed, ‘Wuthering Heights’ a few months ago, I found this print by Janet Hill, which led me to her shop. I immediately felt a kinship with her images, not only because they are so beautiful, but also because they often have such apt and humorous titles. This is a humour that is evident in the artworks themselves, coupled with an intimate tone. The scenes she creates are often small moments out of a day, almost as if you’ve stumbled upon someone’s privacy. The appeal of her art lies in these representations of the ordinary, the small, the intimate, the private, the nostalgic, and the finer unnoticed detail of everyday life. It actually reminds me of the moment you come home and have a look around your place, capturing a fragment of your interiors and day through a heightened awareness of your ordinary surroundings. There’s a quiet beauty to that. And it seems so perfect to decorate a home with images of such quiet beauty.

If you’d like to see more, visit Janet’s website, shop and blog. Thank you Janet for letting me feature your beautiful art.
