Previously featured artist: Janet Parke.

Janet Parke first became interested in fractals in 1996. Fascinated by their colors and shapes, but handicapped by a very slow computer, she at first spent most time exploring others' online fractal galleries. After a hardware upgrade, and the release of Ultra Fractal, she began creating her own images.

In the beginning she created works solely for her own pleasure. When she was invited to exhibit and sell her work in galleries and art festivals, her perspective changed from enthusiastic dabbler to serious artist. She continues to be fascinated by and explore the ways in which her background and experience in the performing arts inspire the shapes, textures and movement of her visual art.
