Of all owls, barn owls are the most beautifully feathered and speckled. Their white faces and blue-gray patterns attract me, and this owl was almost glowing on the shadowy fence upon which he sat.

Getting to Know Jan

Jan’s lifelong passion for animals and art have collided in the images she paints. Her Western subject matter is executed with an impressionistic realism, generally using a limited color palette. Jan captures the essence of her subjects in the details, whether it be the playful visage of a cow or the delicate feathers of a colorful bird. Her paintings embody a genuinely jovial exuberance. Often working on two pieces simultaneously, Jan paints from a small studio in her home in Idaho, where she also enjoys spending time with her teenage children.
