The Artistic Mind Newsletter by Janice Lizabeth
* indicates required

My newsletter is for artists, illustrators, writers, photographers, coaches, craftspeople, solopreneurs, indeed anyone who loves to get creative!

I believe that everyone is creative, and that the world wants your art, whether that’s writing, painting, photography, coaching, entrepreneurship, crafting, or sculpture.

Whatever artistic endeavour speaks to you. You can do it. My motto is to create more, consume less. Get creative. People want your art 🙂


So, grab yourself a cuppa and take time out to read some of my inspirational articles.


Janice Lizabeth welcome
Janice Lizabeth, naïve artist and freelance writer.

I love painting and living by the ocean in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia.

My home and art studio are located inside two converted shipping containers which I share with my imaginary friend Sebold the maned wolf.

In the garden live possums, carpet snakes, yellow robins, bandicoots, wallabies, cicadas and laughing kookaburras.

Some of the things I love most are rainbows, sea eagles, eating oysters and creating magical paintings.

My work follows the naïve tradition, which is known for its childlike simplicity, frankness, and charm.

I like to bring humour and wonder into my subject matter to create joyful paintings of people, birds, animals, and illustrate stories about marvellous creatures inhabiting imaginary worlds.

Currently, I’m a member of the Association of British Naïve Artists (ABNA).


I acknowledge the Arakwal people, traditional custodians of Bundjalung country where I live, and pay my respects to the Elders past and present, and to emerging leaders, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout Australia.
