Jan lives and works in Moffat, and works in watercolour,sometimes mixed media. She chooses to paint subjects taken from nature ~ animals, flowers, as well as figurative compositions. Recently Jan seems to be drawn specially to painting those animals that in some way are threatened or that have a raw deal because of human behaviour. Exploring this never-ending theme has become an emotive undertaking.
In 2011 Jan became an Elected Artist Member of Glasgow Society of Women Artists, and she was awarded the Barclay Lennie Award in 2015. I currently run Watercolour Classes for beginners & those wishing to improve, and also Summer School workshops in various locations.
