Janice Steele: Blissful Balboa (Photorealistic Paintings)

March 6, 2023 - April 28, 2023, Central Library

 Janice Steele Exhibit

For artist Janice Steele, painting has been a hobby ever since she was a teen. Having taken numerous art classes at Stanford University and Orange Coast College, she found inspiration from the world around her—in particular Balboa Island. Beginning at age 10 while attending the Pasadena Presbyterian Church Camp, Mar Casa (located at the end of Marine Avenue on the South Bayfront), Balboa became her place of “bliss”.

Janice Steele left Southern California with her family in 1979, but they bought a cottage on Crystal Avenue in 1984 and eventually built her dream home there in 1998. Over the past ten years, she has participated in the local Balboa Art Walk, selling oil paintings, giclee prints, and note cards depicting her favorite Balboa sites and memories.
