Meet Jan

I’ve always been interested in visual art: looking at it, making it, living with it.

Over the last few years my inner wild child has guided me back onto my artist’s path.

My paintings are abstract expressions of the power of flow, of growth and growing things. They’re energy maps tracking change, stillness and disruption – commenting on the natural world’s birth, flourishing, and extinction phases.

 

My process is play-based exploration. It all begins as an experiment – my inner ‘wild’ child joyfully dancing about in my creative garden. It becomes a dance of appreciation as the media and my imagination call and respond until a compelling story reveals itself in the interplay of colours, textures, and lines. I work mostly in acrylics along with charcoal, pastels and collage on canvas, wood panels and acetate film. I also create layered resin pieces called Art Gems.

I luxuriate in my life with family and friends: teaching Nia, gardening, moving outside in ways that I love AND being a mad artist cooking up visual alchemy deep in my studio.
