    Janet Moore is the artist in residence on the mezzanine level of the Fairmont Empress for the month of May 2024

    As a visual artist Janet Moore is driven by her experiences and surroundings. Each study she creates while painting ‘en plein air’ (painting outside) has captured a moment in time, hoping to convey the emotions and atmosphere of the scene. Working quickly is necessary as conditions constantly change. This causes a loose, quick brushstroke and creates an impressionist effect of the landscape. Janet loves the connection with nature when the sun is shining but also enjoys the challenge of battling the elements on a wet and windy day.

    Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
