The great impressionist painters of the late 19th century, particularly the artists Monet and Renoir have been an influence on her.
Jan Matson has traveled extensively, bringing back ideas and photos to paint from. The cottages and street scenes of France, Italy and Croatia are favorite subjects of Jan’s paintings. Jan loves to roam the countryside and villages of Europe and paint the ancient scenes.
Australian landscapes, country cottages and animals are also loved and painted by Jan. Her animal paintings will start with a few lines painted on board or canvas, then lovely thick oil paint is added, molded and sculpted with a palette knife until the animal raises off the surface and appears to come to life!
