About Jan

Jan grew up in a small village in Yorkshire – her passions from an early age were painting and drawing and exploring the countryside.

Since completing her graphics degree at Middlesex Polytechnic she has been running a successful design company and works from her home studio in Arnside, Cumbria where she lives with her partner and newly adopted dog.

She took up painting a couple of years ago and has quickly developed her own unique style – inspired by the colours, light and reflections in the landscapes around her; she enjoys working quickly to get into the flow; capturing the immediacy, vibrancy and life of the moment.
