Jan is a local girl, native to the Daytona Beach area. While studying art in school she tried all the mediums available. While life and raising a family had started to manifest, the Arts went to the back burner. When finding herself an empty-nester in 2006, Jan's interest in the arts rekindled and she now enjoys painting in oil, acrylic & mixed media capturing local scenes.
While fall art shows have been a profitable and fun way to display and sell her art works, they have also helped keep her up on new techniques and styles.
Jan has not only won many awards and ribbons, but has also taught classes and judged shows.
