Her inspiration comes from her father and his connection to nature and Jan's mission as an artist is to tell stories through her paintings.

Animals are one of Jan's favorite subjects. Scroll to the bottom of the page to wee 8 of her scratchboard and ink artworks, including one of her cherished subjects - Grumpy.  Grumpy is a bunny rabbit and Jan views watching her grow into this amazing little creature as a wonderful experience. She always sketches Grumpy her from life onto the Scratchboard and according to Jan, "it makes it more "nature', not perfect, but an artwork.  Her expressions change all of the time, so it is essential to grab one that catches her mood."
