The Burruels have created a world of plants and trees inhabited by creatures great and small. They take workshops together at the Mesa Art Center and consider this printmaking time as quality time together. They have different approaches to the medium with a similar palette of bright vibrant colors. Janet states, "This work reflects the peace I get from looking at trees." Her work imitates the magic of light coming through a stained-glass window. Manny often displays a sense of humor in his work. He states "I like when my work makes people smile."
Manny studied art at Glendale Community College. His work has been included in several book publications and has locally displayed his work since the late 90s. Janet is a local playwright and award-winning writer, and in the last three years has been professionally showing her visual artwork in galleries around Phoenix.
