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 about reflecting the world around me or maybe reflecting the world that I want. I use colors that are bold and positive and feel balanced in a world that can easily feel out of balance. I rely on the color orange a lot...I’m not sure why but then I read this quote by Frank Sinatra where he said that orange was the happiest color. The man was clearly onto something. So orange - and recently teal and turquoise show up a lot...I think it feels like California - it feels right...and good...and positive and energetic. I’m also a warm weather person so don’t count on me for winter scenes...ever...spring and summer only in my world. And when I mean summer I mean the icons of summer like beaches, palm trees, ocean...you get it.”
