Janine Thomas
Crowfield Studio & Gallery


The bucolic Town of Hartford, New York is home to artist Janine Thomas.

Having honed her skills as the art teacher at the Hartford Central School for many years, she established “Crowfield  Studio  and Gallery” in 2002.

Janine Thomas represents the people, places, and pets inhabiting rural Washington County and the Adirondack foothills. Her realistic images combine classic background tones to create visual works that isolate the unique qualities of chickens, sheep, horses, cows, farm families and 4H kids. Her chickens have become her agrarian trademark.

Saratoga images of race horses and riders are becoming a favorite expression in the oil medium. Realistically rendered jockeys on their mounts emerge out of muted backgrounds combining the dream of racing with the power needed to win. Having owned four morgan horses, the breed features prominentally  in portraits of show horses, driving horses and riders.
