Design for the Visionary… Timeless, Classic, Modern.
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. She holds a BFA in Visual Communication from Northern Illinois University and is a member of the Graphic Artists Guild NY, the New Mexico chapter of the AIGA, Women in Design NM, and past program director for the Society of Typographic Arts Chicago.
Jan’s early work in architecture, interior design and graphics led to a passion for the decorative arts, now reflected in her stylized design, patterned surfaces and photo-based illustration for commercial and fine art application.
Her design process is digital, exploratory and experimental, resulting in the abstraction, distortion and fragmentation of personal imagery. The work is linear, textural, abstract and graphic. Upon perusing Jan’s work, a viewer will find that certain arranged designs at closer inspection often contain secondary and tertiary images completely unique unto themselves. A meld of design, photography and fine art, the work reveals kaleidoscopic compositions and evocative color combinations influenced by contemporary architectural detail and the indigenous arts of exotic lands.
