Painter Janina Rossiter invites us to protect the oceans and the planet's many riches with her liquid and poetic painting
"I've always been a creative person with a passion for Art. So it was quite natural for me to study design, and in particular illustration and communication design at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. I never wanted anything other than a career where I could work artistically and creatively. So when I was at University, my first two years were devoted to Art and Art History. Creativity is therefore at the heart of all my activities, including professional ones in the design sector. I am also an author of children's books, illustration being a medium that fascinates and inspires me in my daily life."
ART IS A POWERFUL COMMUNICATION TOOL
The environment and its protection are my favorite themes for my artistic statement. The fragility of our planet, and in particular that of the oceans, is the main issue that I wish to highlight through my art. Water and nature are fundamental elements in my artwork. Beyond arousing emotions, I want to make the viewer feel the need to act and commit to protecting the planet.
With each painting, with each remark, each observation, my artistic approach grows, evolves and matures. The trust given to me by the viewers inspires me to seek even richer and more innovative ideas. I wish to persevere in this path and dedicate myself solely to my art, and in particular to painting. The subject matters of the ocean and our planet are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for me and, as an artist working for the protection of our oceans and our planet, I want my message to spread around the world.
The technique I use is a completely original adaptation of fluid art that I discovered and developed on my own. The technique involves breaking up the paint in a controlled action, so that it only produces the breaking effect where I want it to be. To me, this fracture or rupture effect evokes the emotion of a planet in conflict. I also work with alcohol ink, which is an ideal technique for evoking the element of water.
In case you are wondering, water based acrylic paint is composed of minute particles of plastic acrylic resin. I fight against single-use plastics and therefore the way that we use plastic. In many cases plastic can be a smart solution to a problem. My paintings are here to last and will hopefully bring lots of happiness into your home.

My series « Amazonas » is dedicated to the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Brazil is the world’s largest exporter and producer of beef. The Amazon forest is being destroyed to make way for beef and soy production, mining, and logging. “Very few people talk about biodiversity, but the Amazon is the most biodiverse ecosystem on land, and climate change and deforestation are putting that richness at risk,” climate scientist Carlos Nobre.
