Jan's Biography

From around 2000 onwards landscape themes in acrylic, oil, mixed media were explored in a more experimental and poetic manner using the artist’s unique, creative interpretations of the Australian landscape. As her landscape work developed she was able to travel and experience much of the vast and beautiful wilderness in this country.

The remote areas of Cape York, Western Queensland and Gulf country, the Northern Territory and Arnhem Land, Western Australia’s Kimberley and Pilbara regions and on two occasions the vast inland sea of Lake Eyre following flooding.  Ever gathering material and ideas for new paintings. These remote wilderness areas continue to be a powerful inspiration in the creation of new artwork. Her evocative contemporary landscape work and ‘billabong’ paintings are highly sought after. She is represented extensively in private collections here and overseas.

 

In the words of the artist.

“My paintings reflect my deep love of nature and the outback. My connections to the landscape and the wide open spaces of this country. To the landscape I bring my own marks, colours, vision and my energy and passion. The act of creation brings life to a painting. The paintings become more than what I physically ‘see’. The act of painting always takes me back to these places”.
