Janine Baldwin PS was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and now lives in Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast. Creating paintings, collages and works on paper inspired by land and sea, her work has a strong focus on mark-making and texture, with influences from Cy Twombly, Abstract Expressionism and Joan Eardley. Janine has exhibited extensively across the UK, including with the Royal Academy of Arts, and the Society of Women Artists, London, and her work has received several prestigious awards, most recently The Artist Magazine Award in January 2021. In 2017 Janine was elected a member of the Pastel Society, London, and she is also an Associate Artist of Unison Colour pastels.
Janine feels passionately about the protection of our landscape and since 2006 she has been a conservation volunteer for the North York Moors National Park, working on projects such as the creation of butterfly habitats, and tree and hedgerow planting. This experience has allowed a deeper understanding of the landscape, in turn enriching the artwork she creates.
