A Chicago native, Jan now lays claim to the Southwest as her adopted home.
Throughout her career as a graphic designer, Jan has partnered with a wide variety of clients, coordinating marketing activities and overseeing the design and production of award-winning visual communications, corporate branding programs, and business graphics.
Jan’s early work in architecture and interior design led to a passion for the decorative arts, now reflected in her stylized photographic illustration, design and patterned surfaces for commercial and fine art application.
Jan holds a BFA in Visual Communication from Northern Illinois University. She is a member of the New Mexico chapter of the AIGA, and past program director for the Society of Typographic Arts in Chicago. No stranger to traditional image-making, Jan appeared in the documentary film, Typeface, as a letterpress printer. Her digital photographic work has appeared most recently in Best of Photography 2014, an annual publication sponsored by Photographer’s Forum Magazine and Sigma Corporation of America.
