Jan is a fine artist living in Mylor near Falmouth, an area of outstanding natural beauty and one of the top sailing centres in Britain. She is well known as an accomplished sailor and long distance cruiser, and can often be seen aboard her classic yacht, sketch book in hand. In 1998 Jan moved away from a professional sailing career to concentrate on painting and illustration work. She uses watercolour, oil, mixed media and pen/ink.
Marinescape, yacht portraiture and loose botanical work are her speciality.
She paints for several west country galleries, exhibitions and an increasing number of private commissions including the RNLI.
