"Isamu" - Oil and cold wax on panel

"Oregon Coast" - Oil and cold wax on panel

Jan has called Eugene home since 2007. She was born in Connecticut and lived in Tasmania (Australia), Boston, Wisconsin, Chicago, and Montana. She earned a BFA degree in painting and sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1990 while working at University Hospital cardiac ICU. She painted, exhibited, and did medical illustration on the side, returning to school in Chicago and graduating in 2001 to practice family medicine.

Since (mostly) retiring from medicine in 2020 she has been immersed in abstract painting, excited by OAS online classes taught early in the pandemic Zoom era by Eugene artists Rebecca Mannheimer and Zoë Cohen. She formed an ongoing working and exhibiting artist group with 4 other participants of Zoë’s class. Her artist group has mounted 4 group shows at The Dalles Art Center, Maude Kerns Art Center, River Gallery in Independence, OR, and Hood River Library. She has also shown in the Eugene Biennial 2022 at Karin Clarke Gallery, received an award at the 2020 Springfield Mayor's Show, and been invited to multiple juried exhibitions.
