Jan lives and works at her art full time in the Pacific Northwest of the United States but has lived in all over the US from Hawaii to the east coast. Her love of illustration and art started very young when she was an “Army Brat” which she says helped to open her up to a constant supply of exciting new experiences, people from around the world and fond memories. Through her art, she loves to encourage people to see the world through the eyes of a child because she believes that’s how we can discover a constant supply of wonder and magic in our lives.

Jan’s favorite medium is artist-grade colored pencil and pen. Even though she most often draws on Bristol Vellum she loves to experiment on other surfaces like copper and wood. She also creates characters from polymer clay when the need for a creative diversion arises. She is the Vice President of the Seattle chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America and a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her work has been featured 3 years in a row in the Ann Kullberg CP Treasures Book volumes 4,5and 6 (2016-2018). CP Treasures is a juried book of 120 colored pencil artists and their work chosen from over 800 artist submissions worldwide.
