Janet Decker Yanez is a process-oriented and socially engaged artist. She works with materials that she has in excess and on hand. She visually documents shared space, time, memories and experiences with media from fabrics to found objects. In her space she cycles through different series, and for the last 6 years has been using food coloring and unconventional spray-painting methods on a variety of surfaces. In 2012, she founded Ground Floor Gallery + Studios, a non-commercial gallery and studio collective that curates varied contemporary exhibitions, hosts open studios, and participates in Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston.
