Artist Spotlight. New ! Art from Jan fisher, now available on-line, from us at The Bay Attic.
Jan was born in Coventry, studied Fine Art at Coventry College of Art and a post graduate in Education at Kings College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Fisher lived in Bristol for several years, teaching in schools, lecturing in Fine Art at Bristol College of Art and worked as a free-lance painter/designer taking on a variety of interesting commissioned works in public places. While living in England she took part in major exhibitions in London, Bristol, Cardiff and elsewhere.
Jan moved to the Scottish Highlands in 1973 spending 2-3 years at a time living in often remote parts of Sutherland, Wester Ross, Argyll and the Grampians, hill-walking with a sketchbook, exploring ways of depicting the beauty, the light and the drama of the Scottish landscape. Working mainly in oils and watercolour, Jan has successfully exhibited in several galleries throughout Scotland.
Now living in Pittenweem, Fife, many of her paintings feature the big skies and seascapes over the Firth of Forth and the coastal villages fringing its shores, although often returning to west coast subjects.
In 2000 Jan and John Fisher opened the Fisher Studio & Gallery, Pittenweem, showing new works by Jan and a diversity of artworks by mainly established and newly graduated Scottish artists.
