Jan's Biography

Jan says that she has been fortunate in her life to have been able to experience much of the vast and beautiful wilderness in this country (Australia). From the landscapes of Kakadu and NT, the Kimberley and Pilbara to Cape York, the Gulf Country, Winton & Western QLD, the vast expanse of the Lake Eyre Basin. Coming closer to her now home, the stunning coastal wilderness and the Hacking River near Sydney.

 

Drawing her love of landscapes she brings her own marks, colours, 'energy' and passion to her artworks, for Jan, the act of creation. Through the physical work of building up surfaces by multi-layering paint and marks (in what she describes as the 'resolution phase') enables her to produce work that is brought to life.
