‘I love to teach art! It is always a thrill seeing students improve in leaps and bounds. I relish the opportunity to pass on everything I have learnt in the past 26 years of producing art and teaching it. Gratefully, students often comment that they have learnt more in my workshops than any previously. On a personal level, my passion is about finding truth and beauty in the natural world, conveying the amazing effects of light and shadows, and using colour to advantage.’ Jan L.
