“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Pablo Picasso
I have documented my journey during the creation of my Artwork by Jan business and I hope that you will find some of this information useful.
“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”
We live in Dorset bordering the New Forest. This beautiful environment provides excellent inspiration offering different landscapes, coastlines and wildlife. Observing the effects of light through trees, reflections on water, the tranquillity and tremendous force of the sea. Also enjoy other activities including trail running and gardening which provide insights to the changing seasons and atmospheres that translate into the mood and colour combinations that support my arts and crafts
This website has been developed to showcase my arts and crafts. In my work I use a range of medium from different types of acrylic application methods, watercolour and pastel. Really enjoy exploring new materials, including mix media and various techniques to make art interesting. Still have many more ideas to explore.
