Jan says that the wildlife photographer Joel Sartore has been a big influence on work, and his interest in the vanishing animals of the world inspired this rendition of an inquisitive Florida panther eyeing a moth.
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.
