Jan Gardner was born and brought up in North Wales and spent much of her early years wandering the lanes and hills around her home. It was here that the light, space and colours that inhabit her work first became an influence. Drawing on these memories and experiences of special places and her later travels in Europe, Morocco and the U.S.A.; she crafts vivid and atmospheric works. Returning to north Wales and to Conwy in 2011 has enabled Jan to re-invest in her beloved landscape and develop and explore new ways of conveying her love of this elemental terrain. The colours that fly in from emotion and passion, relaying a deep connection with the varied, differing landscapes from which they evolve, wild places, dreams and journeys. Jan's work is held in private, corporate and public collections across the U.K and worldwide.
