My life has always centered around animals and art.

High school was about art classes, wanting to attend Philadelphia School of Art. My parents didn't go for that, so instead I attended of the U of Minnesota and became an Animal Health Technician. Worked as a vet tech for 9 years, owned my own boarding kennel for 23 years, nature center for 2 1/2 years and now....I am back to art!

During all those years, I have rescued domestic animals, helped wild animals back to where they belong and have been an advocate for all animals. I have also painted in watercolors, oils, acrylics, rug hooked, worked in stained glass and mosaics, quilted, knitted, felted, had fun with jewelry and of course photography! Most of my artwork has centered around animals.

I exhibit at various art shows in Wisconsin and Minnesota throughout the year, have my images displayed at the artZ gallery in Amery Wisconsin and various private businesses. This spring I will be opening my own small gallery at my home.

My connection with animals/birds is so great and my goal is to help people better understand them through my images. Each wonderful being that I have had the pleasure of encountering has made my life richer.

I hope you will enjoy the images all these beings allowed me to capture and make a connection also! Thank you, Jan
