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 coastline of Scotland, southern England, Wales and Ireland to sail and also 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 plus subjects which involve an element of speed and colour such as motorsport and horse racing are also included in the range of work..

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 the image.  Acrylic is the medium of choice but watercolour and oil can be used depending on the subject matter.
