My artwork is influenced by nature. I am amazed at the ability of the earth to hold steadfast as weather and climate interruptions alter the earth. In its natural state, the earth provides memorable images. Those images are depicted in my art through realism and abstraction.
Long after man has changed the earth, it will heal. Strong and stoic, it will receive light, rain, snow, wind, fire and quakes.
"Look gently at the earth the way she presents herself." Take the color, light and contours and capture the essence."
Jan's watercolors record the shadow cast at a single moment on what grows naturally. REspectful of the contours of the shadow, she paints the negative space..
jan's soil paintings combine acrylics and her own paint formulation made of soil and natural pigments. The oil colors vary by source and geographical location.She also includes found objects to enhance the beauty of each composition.
