fine artist & illustrator

With an interest in a broad range of subjects, from architecture to botanical and landscape, Jan is inspired by all the world has to offer. A fascination with light, shadow & color provides endless challenge and experimentation with several media and new materials.

New works include Alpine & Autumn Collections inspired by recent plein air journeys, coastal studies of sunlit reflections on the sea, and an ongoing series of custom cut original paintings on Aluminum panel. Jan's passion for painting on location finds her in the garden, on the shore or in the forest near home and travelling afar. These small paintings often inspire larger works in the studio.


Jan's professional DESIGN work has included Public art, publishing & educational print and product design. Her designs have been selected for 7 coins by the Royal Canadian Mint.
