Jan was recently named on the "2015 Notable" list by California Plein Air Painters of artists whose work is considered Notable.
Her media is oil paint. During the 70's, Katy received a Masters in Art at San Jose State. At that time she was mainly an abstract artist with a few elements of the landscape coming through.
Now she is more realistic with her landscapes, with abstract elements coming through with brush strokes showing, and keeping as loose as she can. She starts with a limited color palette and paints on a black surface.
"When painting I look for colors and shapes and how everything interacts. I don't like to give the viewer all the information. I like what a viewer brings to a painting."
