Janet Millar the Artist, founder of Kiso Arts
For 30 years Janet has been creating beautiful art pieces using her unique calligraphy style. Normally focusing solely on commissions Janet decided in 2014 to branch out and offer her Irish Dancing Collection as a unique set of prints making them available to customers throughout the world and now in 2015, her artwork of local areas has been reproduced into high quality greeting cards.
Working alongside a local Irish Dancing School in her home town of Portrush in Ireland's famous Causeway Coast, Janet studied the history of the costumes, the unique and hard to master Irish Dancing movements and positions and has brought these to life in a stunning one of a kind collection of prints created from her original artwork.
Janet's attention to detail is what makes her work so highly prized and sought after. She has dedicated months to developing this collection, beginning with her studies of Irish dancing traditions including the steps, the costumes and the shoes, to developing her ideas for the prints, creating the original water colours and then carefully researching the best inks, materials and printers to produce the final prints available to purchase here on this website.
The new range of greeting cards showcases our beautiful local areas in a totally unique way using only black and white. There is a depth and mystery within each image that combines a little bit of contemporary with traditional.
Kiso Arts is located in Portrush on the world famous Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland.
