Jan Davis

Artist statement and biography

“Most of my paintings depict flowers.  To me, flowers convey a sense of hope and optimism.  The unlimited shapes and colorsallow for a great deal of imagination and experimentation.  The background areas also provide even more opportunities forpainterly expression.  Many of the flowers look wind-blown. I try to give a sense of movement through the use of line.  I amcurrently working on adding texture by applying pieces of cut-up fabric to the canvas.  I paint almost everyday.
