Janelle Illes' Gallery

Janelle Illes

Janelle possessed a visual relationship and curiosity about art very early in life that has flourished over four decades.

She is a self taught contemporary pencil artist who’s work is based on her own photographs. Inspired by the beauty and history of humanity in the process of living. 

Influenced by her mothers interest in family and local history, stories and culture. 

Her work represents reality with a focus on her depicted subjects encouraging attention to the world in which we live. 

Janelle was born in Mareeba QLD and grew up in Normanton in the Gulf Of Carpentaria where her art journey started and has never left her. The opportunity to concentrate on her art full time came after returning to her roots and pulling up stumps in Tolga. Working from her rustic purpose built studio 63 at picturesque Rangeview.

Janelle’s art is represented in private collection’s and businesses in Australia. 

One of her paintings “Hell At High Range” commissioned by Operations Support Battery 4th Regiment RAA is displayed at Townsville’s Lavarack Barracks.

“I have always felt compelled to create art. I love the challenge and the feel of the pencil on the paper. The rewards are endless.

Taking part in the making of history and creating something that will be here long after I’m gone. 

I feel blessed with the freedom to do what I love every day.

The biggest reward by far is seeing my art touch someone’s heart and soul.”
