About Janice McDonald

Janice holds a BFA from Oregon State University with a concentration in graphic design. She has had a graphic design practice in Colorado for many years and began to seriously explore her interest in collage about 20 years ago.

Along the way, she studied collage in Dale Chisman’s abstract painting class at the Art Students League of Denver and with collagist Jonathan Talbot in New York. Her unusual technique is the result of many influences and years of experimentation.

Janice’s work has been included in: an International Collage Exhibition at Kansas State University; solo shows at Denver's Spark Gallery ("Unboxed," 2016; "Paper Trails, 2015; "Overlooked Artifacts," 2013; "Bounce," 2012 and "Composed," 2011); “Re-Purposed,” at Denver's Edge Gallery in 2009; and in juried exhibitions around the US and internationally.

She is a signature member of the National Collage Society and helps moderate an online collage group that is sponsored by the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage, and Construction.

Janice is affiliated with Spark Gallery in Denver, Colorado and served as its co-director 2014-2015. She works from her home studio and the Art Gym in Denver.

Janice's collages are included in the collections of the Adolph Coors Foundation, Denver International Airport, IMA Financial, CoBank, Beaver Run Resort, Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, Denver Health, Denver Seminary, Aspen Arbor Animal Hospital, and Boulder Community Hospital among others.
