Janet Botes is a visual artist from South Africa. Her work is inspired by the natural rhythms of the Earth and by taking into consideration how deep ecology, biology, the Gaia theory and our daily lives intertwine. The environmental crisis is an urgent prompt for us to live in harmony with the planet, animals, each other and the land. Janet hopes to inspire a reconnection by learning more about herself and the world, finding new ways of being, and sharing this through her work. Her art includes land art, mixed media work, performance, new media, watercolour painting, ink and drawing.
