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.

I try to take a moment each day to study this piece. I love the mood, the colors, the beauty of the landscape and capturing of American life through the lens of the working rancher in the rugged west. There are many brushstrokes and uses of color playing between the light and shadows that fascinate me.- J Fowler
