— Jan Weiss is an artist living in the Bay Area. She likes coffee, Netflix and dogs.
Jan Weiss is a native California artist working in a variety of mediums from acrylic on wood panel and canvas to digital renderings and typography.
"My earliest memory of knowing I wanted to make art was after I received a set of high quality felt tip markers as a Christmas gift. The back of the package had a painting by Monet - who I was not familiar with at the time - and after seeing the image I thought that someone rendered that painting with markers. Which led me to believe if someone else did that then I could too. What ambition for an eight year!"
Jan's work ranges from abstract landscapes, to modern design, typography and a clear activist influence to some of her work appealing to feminists and outspoken progressives everywhere.
Jan believes in the democracy of art; that art belongs to everyone and creates works that fall into a variety of prices making it available to a range of budgets and buyers.
“My art is an adventure. I am constantly trying out new styles and techniques but when I look at my collection I see a similar palette or unique signature that defines my individual nature. I continue to grow and learn and discover through my art".
Jan received her BA in Fine Arts from Cal State East Bay and shows in galleries in the Bay Area. She is represented by several fine art publishers and online third party sites such as Saatchi, Great Big Canvas, Red Bubble, Zazzle and Artfully Walls. Jan lives with her husband and Bruce, the Rescue Puggle, in Martinez - a suburb of San Francisco.
