Janneth Gil is a Colombian-born, New Zealander who completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at Canterbury University.
Janneth started drawing and painting at a young age, however, the social instability, poverty and cultural beliefs of her birth country forced her follow an Electrical Engineering and Project Management career. Now after many years of hard work, she had the opportunity to completely dedicate her life to what she is most passionate about, Art.
She truly believes in helping others with her skills. Janneth uses her artwork to empower, teach or simply help the oppressed to have a voice or to achieve a better life. When developing a body of work, she considers different periods in history, cultures and societal norms. She uses these ideas and her personal experiences to depict taboos and the conflict between perceptions, emotions and reality.
