Janet Horne Cozens began studying art at the age of two in Japan. Her love of art continued after her family immigrated to Northern Ontario thanks to her mother, a well-known Haiku poet, who encouraged her to be creative and explore various media. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in Music Performance, Janet returned as an adult student to the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD) to study Fine Art with a specialty in figure drawing and painting. After almost two decades away from art to pursue a career and raise a son, she has finally realized her dream of returning to her first love - art.
Cozens has been included in exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Burlington, Print London, the Headwater Arts Festival and the Grimsby Public Art Gallery. She recently won the Juror's Choice Award at the 2016 All Guilds Juried Exhibit at the Art Gallery of Burlington.
Janet Horne Cozens lives and works in Burlington, Ontario with her son and her husband, Charles Cozens, internationally acclaimed arranger to the stars and conductor of the Burlington New Millennium Orchestra.
