About Jan Lowe

Realist and Wildlife Artist – all mediums

Living and working in Camberwell, Victoria Australia, Jan likes to paint in watercolour, oils, acrylics, scratch-board, pen and wash and just about anything that makes a mark on paper or canvas! Her love of nature and animals shows in her art, also likes to observe people and anyone or place will end up in a drawing. Having had the fortunate to travel internationally and working with the wild life organizations gave her the opportunity to sketch many animals encountered. In the nineties she returned to painting. A natural artist, learned from many by attending workshops, demonstrations, visiting galleries and reading.
As natural artist and lesson she has learned over the years is to complete a rough of your drawing/painting first then do any changes, and use that thumb nail sketch as a guide for your planning and “story telling” – all of her paintings have a special story – no matter what the subject!
She has had 3 solo and 5 joint exhibitions since 2006. The latest being Special Interest Group for Watercolour Exhibition (SIG) held in October 2012 and since 2012 runs the annual exhibition 'Animals in Art' - an exhibition of lovers of animals - these exhibitions are held annually at the AGRA Galleries, Camberwell Victoria. Since 2002 she regularly exhibits in the seasonal exhibitions run by the Guild and exhibits in all of the on-line competitions. Influenced by Robert Wade, Harley Brown, Robert Batemen, Rembrandt, Kath Ballard, Constable, Rubens.
