Janet Garlikov is a multi-media painter that currently lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. 

She is a self-taught artist with a diverse history that informs her current studio practice as a painter. She has experience in graphic communication, traditional black and white photography, quilting, drawing, and faux finishing.  She has completed the Ohio State Master Gardener Program, as well as a variety of intensive Faux finishing courses. These programs led her to her furthered commitment to gardening, as well as several faux finishing commission works that include an impressive on-site mural for the Anshe Emeth temple in Piqua, Ohio.
Janet currently spends much of her time at her home studio, while also very active in the contemporary Dayton arts scene. She often works and plays at the ever-expanding Front Street Studio spaces, which are open to the public twice a month. She often exhibits her work there, and other venues around the region. She has mounted a solo show at the Color of Energy Gallery in the Oregon District in downtown Dayton, and is currently on display at Wheat Penny (Oregon District), as well as Ray’s Wine-Spirits-Grill in Clayton, Ohio.
