Artist Profiles » Jan Hart

Jan HartJan was born in Southland, New Zealand and completed her first commissioned work as a teenager and has worked as an artist most of her life. Oil, watercolour, airbrushing, dyes, pen and ink have been her chosen medium, and more recently oil pastel with gouache/acrylic. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout New Zealand and overseas. Jan exhibits her various styles of work and enjoys success with awards, gallery and group exhibitions. Along side her art making she undertakes pen and ink and graphite drawings for use in publications.

Colour, light, and texture are Jan’s lifeblood. Through her paintings ordinary subjects take on a life of their own. She has an intrinsic affinity with nature which shows in her paintings. Jan specialises in land and seascapes and will sometimes emphasise flora taken from these surroundings in the foreground of her works. By travelling throughout New Zealand she gains inspiration for her paintings on both land and water. Jan works from her studio in Glendowie, Auckland and still enjoys undertaking commissioned work.

The year 2008 has seen Jan rewarded for her work with several awards: First prize in the Open Oil/Acrylic section at the Royal New Zealand Easter Show as well as several merits. ‘Artworks at the Hilton’ saw her enjoying working as an ‘artist in residence’ for Auckland’s largest week long Festival of Art and in October Jan received two awards at ‘Artauckland’ – one in the Open Painting Section and one in the Photographic Section.
