Jan’s work is not quick. Her rhythm is the pace of the farm – plant and wait. Each knot, twist and tuck, is the seed planting for a whole growth. It’s is one by one, each knot, one on top of the other, like digital pixels lining up on the 3d screen of life, til thousands upon thousands, tens of thousands of knots and many months later, the reaping is complete. There is a new piece for you to smile at, to walk around, to share, to live with in your garden or foyer. and you realize that jan has spoken the truth when she says, she can’t work small. You would need very big shelves to display Jan’s yard knick knacks.
As you can see from just a quick glance at Jan’s work, there is a guttural, primitive quality that resonates deeply with so many. She has been lauded for her work at the Recycle Art Show in Columbus, Indiana and won best in show and people’s choice at a respected show in Fairfield, Ohio. Her pieces beg to be touched. Lived with. They create smiles. You are not alone if you have thought to yourself, “I have never seen anything like them.”
