Jan takes inspiration for her quilts from the natural beauty of her beachside suburb, from architecture, gardens and even art pieces in a gallery. Jan utilises a number of techniques in her quilt making, often incorporating machine embroidery and thread work into her projects.
Describing her style as contemporary, Jan admits to still loving the traditional designs. ‘I love strong colours,and this is manifest in many of my quilts. Recently, I challenged myself to make a few pieces using more neutral colours. Nature is my main inspiration for colour. In nature almost anything goes and I try to apply this approach to my use of colour in quilts.’
