Artwork by Jan Brown

Jan is a balletomane who prefers a bright palette using broad brush strokes or a palette knife on big canvases where there is ‘room to move'. Works are developed from life drawing sessions with ballerinas who dance for her and her own observations and experiences.

She works from her home studio in the beautiful, coastal city of Perth, West Australia. She has always danced and is still taking regular ballet class at the West Australian Ballet Centre.

Following a meeting  at UNESCO, Paris she now has membership of the International Dance Council and has been invited to the Annual Conference in Athens 2018 as an Australian delegate to talk about her art practice. 

She has gallery representation in Australia and the UK and in January 2018 presented her approach to ballet and art in "Meet the Artist" sessions at the Royal Academy of Dance Teacher's Conference in Brisbane.  She will exhibit in conjunction with St Petersburg Ballet who will perform Swan Lake in June 2018 at His Majesty's Theatre, Perth and also at the up-coming Royal Academy of Dance Festival in WA

'La Gavotte' Artwork

A dance memory of La Gavotte. I remember clearly the rich gold satin costume, black

permeate.
