Artist Profile
Much of Jan’s inspiration comes from the flowers and the wonderful pond in her back garden. I love colour, whether it’s in a bottle or tube or as a powder, as soon as water is added it brings the colour alive and my imagination takes flight. Art isn’t only for people who can afford to buy it and hang it on their walls. I like to reach out into the community to help those whose world has become very small and confined.
