Rose Ann"Too erotic!" "Too exotic!" That's how Vancouver City officials viewed Rose Ann Janzen's work in 1984. They ordered the painting in question removed from a City Hall Public Exhibition of British Columbia Artists. Art critic Max Wyman, among others, rallied in support of Rose Ann but to no avail. The painting remained "banned from City Hall."RA Janzen Studio in Roberts Creek

Although mainly self-taught, RoseAnn has studied art in the Netherlands, at the Banff School of Fine Arts and at the University of British Columbia. Whether exploring the medinas of Morocco, trekking through the jungles of Costa Rica or sailing the South Pacific, she is the irrepressible traveller, never without sketch book in hand. View opposite is of her Studio/Gallery in Roberts Creek on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.

RoseAnn's paintings can be viewed at the Dr. Vigari Gallery on Commercial Drive in Vancouver, The Gibsons Public Art Gallery in Lower Gibsons, Eco Freako in Roberts Creek, at the Coastal Art Gallery in Sechelt and at her studio by appointment. Please call 604 886-0936 or email for details.
