Jan Fordyce

Jan Fordyce Paintings

"The landscape: a place to explore, relax, become energized, observe, and become a part of. My interpretations of that realm through paint."

Jan Fordyce creates paintings from a lifelong fascination with the landscape. The paintings are based on an expressive vision of the world around her. Inspiration may come from the light, color, shadows, or composition of the scene. A dialogue of subconscious thought and energy take over as the paint moves across the canvas. Her desire is to engage the viewer in a conversation with the painting.

Jan Fordyce uses oil on canvas to express the landscape. The rich color of oil paint is manipulated with a combination of brushes, palette knives, and glazes to create texture and edges that merge the color into landscape forms.

Jan Fordyce started pursuing drawing and painting at an early age. She attended California College of the Arts in the Bay Area for two years and went on to receive a BFA from the University of California at Davis in painting and drawing. She then pursued an MFA in fiber arts and photography. She has studied with notable artists such as Quang Ho, Dale Chisman, and Doug Dawson.
