Janie Camp-Hjortsberg is a self-taught painter whose evocative Western landscapes reflect her connection to a rich Montana heritage. She has exhibited in galleries, museums and many invitational shows in the West, and is a long-standing participant in the C.M. Russell Auction of Original Art. Camp’s grandparents homesteaded on the West Boulder River in Sweetgrass County in the 19th century. From these roots, Camp captures the essence of Big Sky Country. Her love of art, fostered by the encouragement of her Norwegian grandmother, has imbued her oil paintings with a romantic sensibility uniquely her own. Although she adheres to no particular school, Camp’s work combines an impressionist's eye with the subtle harmonies of Tonalism.
