Primarily oils on canvas or linen and usually from life, both of friends and on commission.


I paint oil portraits on commission over the internet video chat client of your choice. Contact janet@bruesselbach.com for pricing.


My work is figurative, informed by life study, sometimes conventional portraiture in collaboration with a subject, as in the Daughters of Mercury series. More often it is compositionally improvisational, using templates from space photography and regularly rotating the canvas or adopting unique installation structures. The spatial and anatomical confusion intends to embrace the contradictions of the facial image. It's a conversation between materials.


Character design, book-inspired work, and scientific drawing.
