Jan Atkinson was born and raised in Toronto but has lived in Cobourg since 1975. When time became more available, Jan began to explore various art forms. In 2000, she took art lessons from a number of talented artists in the Cobourg/Port Hope area.
Painting with acrylics has become Jan’s main focus as she finds it a very forgiving medium and the acrylics allow her to achieve the beautiful bold colors which dominate all of her paintings.
Her paintings have evolved over the years and her favourite style can only be described as whimsical. The viewer and the artist are given a sense of joy and happiness, usually accompanied by a smile, while viewing these art pieces.
Jan’s art is not limited to strictly wall art but has adorned many pieces of furniture and a large number of custom floorcloths.
Jan’s art has been well received in restaurants, stores and many juried shows throughout the region.
“There is always much more to learn and I look forward to the continuous evolution of my artwork.”
