Working with shape, tone, colour and pattern, the elements of any painting, is a challenge but also very personal. Thats all it can be.


Those weathered, old, arrangements of wall, window, roof and chimney are so exciting and spark my imagination.


Movement and texture are the elements that come to the fore here as well as the other favourites of shape and line. Inspired by local scenes and Scotland.

Still Life

Everything is a shape or a space or a pattern or a colour - Jug and Pots, Flowers and Fruit. For me it's how they all sit with each other in balance.

Jans paintings are richly satisfying as well as extremely fresh and immediate. Two qualities that aren't easy to combine
