Janes strives to combat the popular perception that fine art can only be in certain styles or of certain subjects. According to Janes, "Now more than ever I am striving to push my work so that the family pet is used as an artistic tool to depict deeper questions and messages about our society. Everyone can relate to the family dog but not everyone has a cognizance of the social issues that I depict in my paintings. The dogs serve as a bridge for individuals to journey into topics and questions that they may have never explored before but certainly affect their lives nonetheless."
Janes is a graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design and resides in northern Ohio with his wife, son, and two dogs.
