Jan Marie is a traditional artist who works in a variety of media including watercolour, acrylic paint, and felt-tip marker. The artist is currently based in Arizona.
It’s interesting to browse through Jan’s portfolio and see the wide variety of media that the artist experiments with. In Jan’s gallery of acrylic works, the artist showcases paintings on round canvases that are reminiscent of the painted mandalas of Carolyn Trotter. The works often feature floral motifs, a perfect complement to the curvature of the substrate.
Jan’s watercolour paintings take a more nuanced and detailed approach to landscape painting, with lush greens and blues standing in for grass, trees, and sky. Many of these works seem like they were painted en plein air, with impressionistic attention to lighting and detail. Jan’s more illustrative work also graces book covers, handmade greeting cards, and even shirts.
