Janet Laura Scott (1888-1968) was an illustrator and landscape artist. She was known for her work with the PF Volland publishing company and later, as a prominent regional watercolorist in Maine.
Scott was born in Wisconsin, but her formative years were spent in Illinois, where she attended the Art Institute of Chicago. She spent a year abroad in Munich, returning just before the outbreak of WWI, and began her career as a commercial artist. She produced greeting card and picture book illustrations for the PF Volland, which specialized in “Sunny” picture books, ones that told happy stories to children. Her bright watercolors with their flat color and minimal shading were perfect for their needs, and she was kept steadily busy with projects. She was versatile with different kinds of media, and would employ several over the span of a larger project, with the exception of oils, which she never cared for.
Over the course of her career, she illustrated greeting cards, calendars, baby books, several issues of “Child Life” magazine, and “Child Craft” articles, some of which continued to be in print in multiple editions. She designed Raggedy Ann dolls for the PF Volland, who published Johnny Gruelle, and illustrated the “Bobbsey Twins” books.
In 1926, she met the artist Carroll Thayer Berry when working for a Chicago advertising agency. During the Depression they moved back to Berry’s native New England, where they bought a house in Wiscasset, Maine. Their home became a meeting place for craftsmen and artists of the region. She continued working in illustration, usually under the name “Janet Scott Berry.” Later, she became enamored with the Maine coastline and turned her attention to landscape painting, which eventually outpaced her commercial work, and she continued to paint until her death in 1968.
