Jan is a mixed media and fiber artist who lives in Austin Texas. She previously lived in the Southwest for over 30 years. She has worked in various mediums over the 30 years as an artist. She has apprenticed under Phil Lauer to learn Cloisonné enameling and Helene Rumpel to learn fine art stitchery. She has taken various painting workshops and classes from oils to mixed media and sculpture from clay to wood to casting. She enjoys the tactile beauty of nature so her mixed media art that she currently works on reflects that.
What she says of her art “doing art is therapy for me and also I feel God speaking to me and leading me with the pieces. Sometimes people need to feel true peace within themselves in this crazy world to maintain a sane life. I feel God’s peace when I do art-it’s like co-creating with Him. My hope is that my art will give a sense of peace and hope to people. That it would also inspire them to fulfill their destiny or at least have them consider that they have a destiny that goes beyond what they can possibly imagine or see and let them know that they are not alone but that God is watching over them and does care about every part of their life. ”
