Artist Information


Janet (Jan) Nelson is a mainly self-taught artist, apart from 3 years study with the Open College of the Arts and has been painting for over 25 years. Jan works full time from her studio in the lovely East Neuk of Fife.

With the sea nearby, work can be combined with her other great love of sailing.  She makes regular trips around the coast of Britain and particularly to the West Coast of Scotland both for sailing and to observe the changing scenery and find new ideas for her work.   Although the majority of Jan’s work relates to the sea, she is also an accomplished landscape painter where a passion for nature comes to the fore, particularly in her floral works.   


The paintings you will see are as much about the paint as the picture - the paint is laid on thickly so that it catches the light and adds extra depth.  This style of painting helps to capture the tremendous movement, thrills and glorious colours of sailing both in a scenic and racing sense. Acrylic is the medium of choice but watercolour and oil are also used depending on the subject matter. 

'Morning Beach Walk for Inspiration!'

Jan concentrates her work within a few select galleries around the United Kingdom and paintings can also be found in numerous private collections worldwide.
