Jan began painting in 1994. Instructed primarily in watercolor, it remains her main interest today. Color pencil has been her second area of interest. She has recently begun to experiment in acrylic and enjoys the different variations on technique that can be made with that medium.
As a representational watercolorist, she expresses the mood of the painting through her use of color. Shadow and texture is also communicated through color. The unique light of the West Texas sky provides many subjects that are used as still life compositions.
Jan has a studio in Alpine, Texas which she recently opened as a gallery featuring the local artists whose work ranges from jewelry and stained glass to paintings and 3-D works.
Below are some samples of Jan's work.
