Art Brokerage: Janet Treby English Artist: b.1955. The youngest of four children Janet Treby was born in London in 1955 and grew up in a small country village in Bedfordshire. She embarked on a two year foundation course at Barnfield College, Luton, followed by a degree at West Surrey College of Art and Design specialising in printmaking and sculpture. After learning many skills there Treby then went onto the Slade School of Fine Art and completed a two year post graduate in printmaking. Whilst at the Slade School she started lecturing in printmaking specialising in mezzotint. Upon leaving college she lived in a studio apartment in Wapping, East London and one could say that Treby did the bohemian artist's thing. She built up a successful relationship with a gallery called the Curwen Gallery who gave her first one-women exhibition in the 80s. She also won a few awards 'The Lloyds Young Printmaker of the Year' and the 'Elizabeth Greenshield award' which allowed her to paint for a year. Throughout all of this, in the 80s, she was lecturing and doing other various jobs to support her art. From this humble beginning Janet Treby is now represented worldwide by dozens of galleries.
