OVERTON, Nevada – After spending much of her professional life in the beauty industry in the Pacific Northwest, and creating art on the side, Janet Trobough took a leap of faith that landed her squarely in Southern Nevada.

After relocating to the Silver State in 1998, she began her new career as an artist – painting every day and adding to her skill set whenever possible. While she had painted extensively in oils, she received a formal introduction to watercolors from Max Bunnell, professor of art at Dixie State College in Southern Utah.

Today, Trobough works in many different areas of art – water colors, alabaster, sculpture, soap stone and decorative guards. She loves painting in Native American themes and also enjoys landscapes, florals and contemporary subjects.

A variety of Trobough’s work will be on display at the Lost City Museum in Overton throughout the month of January. The museum is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Lost City Museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. One of seven museums managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History, an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is located at 721 S. Moapa Valley Blvd., Overton.
