Janet (Jan) Nelson is a mainly self-taught artist apart from 3 years study with the Open College of the Arts  and has been painting for over 25 years.
 
Jan works full time from her studio.  With the sea nearby, work can be combined with her other great love of sailing.  She makes regular trips around the coast of Britain to observe the changing scenery and find new ideas for her work. 
 
Although the majority of Jan’s work relates to the sea, she is also an accomplished landscape painter where a passion for nature comes to the fore, particularly in her floral works.  She works mainly in Acrylic or oil, depending on the subject matter.  In her work she makes extensive use of impasto techniques – laying the paint on thickly using both brush and palette knife – the paint itself, in its reflection of light and the speed and strength of its application, echoes the subject matter
