JAN PHETHEAN is a designer and illustrator who spends as much of her time painting as she possibly can.After travelling widely she now lives in Cornwall and her work reflects her passion for nature, landscape and wildlife. She likes to repeat the patterns that occur in nature, such as trees and field patterns and the result are richly coloured and decorative paintings. She is inspired by the sea; the landscapes of Bodmin and Dartmoor and she still travels widely; notably annually to Brazil. Jan is a member of The Association of British Na├»ve Artists and the St. Ives Society of Artists. tortoiseshellriver
