Jan works primarily in transparent watercolor with a traditional watercolor style. She is most interested in subjects that allow her to use large sweeping washes as under-glazes and often paints with a wet into wet style. Using a fine spray bottle of water, the artist mists the composition while continuing to add color and shape. As the composition builds with layers of washes, the use of a continuous spray keeps the edges soft and atmospheric.

Jan lived in Southwestern Pennsylvania for over 20 years and currently live in Alden, Michigan near her shop. Jan loves having a studio to paint beautiful landscapes of the north year round.
