Jan learned to create life in Emily Carr University’s film animation department, and has carried those tools into her current painting practice. She's been painting in the South Okanagan for nearly 20 years, focusing on character development and narrative. Her studio work showcases the life around her on the small farm, encounters with friends, and interesting characters in the wild and in the news. Jan also accepts a few commissions a year. She has recently opened Little Long Studios + Gallery in Penticton, BC.
