Jan Maitland...
specializes in portraits and also draws from foreign and American motifs from nature, and the human form for her vividly designed landscapes,figure paintings, and glass art. "I owe my painting style to a love for "Impressionism." I find that period most fascinating, especially the use of broken and bright color. When I paint, I like to remember Monet's magnificent use of color as well as his brilliant technique for demonstrating light and color. I think of Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt for their prolific use of pastel painting. They are the inspiration that lead me to the medium of pastel." This rich background has also been a springboard for developing Jan's unique, Italian inspired, line of three dimensional painted gilded glass art.
