Jan became a surface pattern designer 10 years ago. It all started on a flight to Australia when she was talking with the artist sitting next to her. Jan and her husband were going to work temporarily in a small town north of Sydney and south of Newcastle and as soon as they were settled, Jan started an online design course.

They are back living in the UK now - that life-changing experience had a profound effect - from the bold, bright colours to the sounds and sensations of the rainforest - all continue to appear in some form or other in her work, often blended together with local influences.

A love of nature and humour inspire her work and she loves to use all kinds of media from watercolour to paper collage and digital.

Jan has been represented by 2 agencies and her work was shown at Indigo, Paris as well as Blueprint, NY - and she sold fabric and stationery collections at both. Now she has built up ongoing relationships with a few companies and her current work is found at Target, Minted and CardIsle to name a few.
