Burton Village in pen & ink

Burton, Ohio, certainly isn’t the epicenter of architectural study. However, the architecture in this region is traced back to the early 1800’s and some restored buildings have been standing proudly for nearly 200 years.

This is Janet’s community–her personal history. She was born and raised in Burton Village, and she’s excited to share the beauty of this small town.

Along with Burton’s historic church and library (pictured below), Janet has also drawn the Burton Log Cabin.

  1. Janet’s work reflects her background as a girl raised in a century home in a small century village, daughter of a carpenter specializing in old building restoration, and from a family known for their beautify gardens and love of nature. Her attention to details in both architecture and flora can only be accomplished by an artist who truly appreciates, respects, understands and admires their topics. I am a very proud owner of many of Janet’s original pieces.
