Jan’s Conversation   

‘My early life experiences are incorporated in my abstract art. I am inspired by a love of golf, amazing views, river and coastal water environments, a quality-loving creative mother and a mathematical engineering fun father. Cornish raised, state-degree-educated, global business wise and South West London living all fuse to celebrate my creativity. As I continue enjoying my life, I find painting to be very freeing, momentary and healthy.

I use water based paints and prefer acrylic paint for its range of consistency.  I love the challenge of pouring paint creating movement. Then brush on solid shapes to create resting calmness giving a depth and floating sensation. My favourite colours are blues and greens, inspired by shades in water and landscapes which enhance our wellbeing.

I hope you enjoy my art’.
