Janice Pugsley the artist
Janice Esther Mary Pugsley (1952-2003) was very much an artist and a creative person in so many ways. I will always remember when I first met Janice she was wearing a white sari, with makeup that made her look oriental. We were both in the New Moon Club, a popular Cardiff venue where local rock bands played. Janice stood out from the crowd and I thought she was amazingly beautiful with her exotic looks. That was the start of my longest relationship ever.
How she was dressed when I met Janice that time very well illustrates the artist that she was because her creativity extended into many areas of her life including what she was wearing. How she looked showed her individuality and artistic nature. Described on a YouTube site as a “Cardiff eccentric, actress, singer-songwriter, artist, and entertainer. A true fringe polymath,” she was someone who thought outside the box and because of this we shared a mutual bond.
