This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted February 2005, is from Charles Munro, husband of the artist.

Massachusetts-born Janet Munro is a painter whose career has spanned thirty-five years. Collections of her work include: The Smithsonian Institution, The Clinton White House, Mrs.Barbara Bush Sr., Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, Estate of Mrs. Rose Kennedy,
Smucker's Inc., Tropicana Inc., The John D. and Catherine T. Mac Arthur
Foundation, The American Cancer Society, CDC., Atlanta, Museum of American Folk Art, N.Y.C., Estate of Dr. Benjamin Spock, Estate of Emmet Kelly Sr., Mr. Cliff Robertson, Estate Mr. Isaac Stern, The Beach Boys, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Whoopi Goldberg, and Penny Marshall.

Munro describes her canvases as "pictorial-history" or "paintings with a message actually read by the viewer, like a page in a book". With a noted focus on the waterfront lives of everyday people, her favorite subjects are her native Massachusetts, New England, East-Coast factory towns and the Hudson River. Whether it is a bustling town street, or a quiet bayside, Munro is always striving for realism, and she carefully finishes each canvas to tell a story of American Life.

Janet Munro was born Janet Andrea Lehne in Woburn, Massachusetts in 1949. She married Charles Eldon Munro in 1968, and they had three children and ten grandchildren. She resides in Hyannis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

"I got married in 1968, and did not go to college after high school. We had three kids right away, and I had a lot of part-time jobs, but I never took a job I couldn't quit. I've been a waitress, housekeeper, baby-sitter, window washer, bakery clerk, flower designer, and hospital EKG technician. But I always knew that I was really a painter, and that working for a little money at some other job was temporary, 'till I could get back to my canvases."
