Jan’s deep love for the magnificent outdoors inspires her photography. “I am awestruck and filled with joy in the presence of nature around me. Whether in my own backyard or high in the mountains I feel God lift my spirit, renew and refresh my soul,” she says. To access some of these remote places, Jan’s passion has been hiking, skiing, and horseback riding. Her parents introduced them to her as Jan says, “When I was a flicka.” (Swedish for young girl) Her Dad is Swedish and Mom Danish.
With her parent’s encouragement, Jan received a BA in Art at CSUS. Expanding her art field, Jan learned Photography at Columbia Junior College. She now shows her work in the foothills, where she and her husband Joe reside in Murphys, CA. Through photography Jan hopes to share with others the awesome creation she experiences.
