Janice Dumas has been fascinated with watercolor since she was a teenager in southeast Michigan. Her love of nature and the beauty around us has inspired her focus on plein air painting for over ten years. One of the founding members of the Michigan Plein Air Painters, Janice has participated in paint-out events in several locations including Glen Arbor, Dexter, Saginaw and Cadillac.

Her work has been exhibited in shows sponsored by numerous organizations including ArtPrize, Michigan Watercolor Society, Susan Kathleen Black Foundation, Our Town, and Village Fine Art Association. In 2013, she was honored to be selected by the Glen Arbor Art Association for their artist in residence program, and again at the ISLAND House artist in residence program. Janice was a third place award winner in the 2014 Dexter Quick Draw; second place award winner in the 2015 Dexter Professional category; and has also won awards at Cadillac and Saginaw plein air events.

A lifetime resident of the Midwest, Janice graduated with a BFA from Wayne State University.
