Janet Decker Yanez is a process-oriented, socially engaged artist. She works with materials that she has in excess and on hand. She visually documents shared space, time, memories and experiences with media from fabrics to found objects. In her studio she cycles through different series, and for the last 8 years has been using food coloring and unconventional spray-painting methods on a variety of surfaces.
In 2012, she founded Ground Floor Gallery + Studios, in the Wedgewood/Houston neighborhood, which operates as a non-commercial gallery and studio collective. GfG+S provides studios for 11 artists and curates varied contemporary exhibitions, hosts open studios/tours, and participates in Nashville‘a Art Crawl.
Janet has a BFA in painting with a minor in Art History from the University of Houston. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in private and corporate collections. www.janetdeckeryanez.com
