Artists

Jan Nelson

Jan Nelson was born in Glasgow in 1956. She is a self taught artist who studied for three years through the Open College of the Arts at Leith School of Art in Edinburgh and has been painting for over 25 years. Working on a part time basis initially, she took up painting full time in 2008 and is now based at her studio on the Cowal Peninsula of the West Coast of Scotland, where work can be combined with her other great love of sailing.

Jan’s paintings are as much about the paint as the picture – the paint is laid on thickly so that it catches the light and adds extra depth. This style of her painting helps to capture the tremendous movement, thrills and glorious colours of sailing, both in a scenic and racing sense.

All of Jan’s originals are framed exclusively by Annan Frame Company. The frame width varies between 12.5cm for the smaller pieces and 20cm for the larger ones, so you need to add another 25x25cm to 40x40cm to the painting dimensions below.
