About the Artist
A Brief History
Jan Hodgson lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. The casual lifestyle of living by the beach inspires her artistic creativity and nurtures her love of nature.
She never tires of admiring the simple but sometimes extremely complex beauty of nature’s gifts.
Jan paints exclusively in pastel. Pastels are a very permanent medium and all paintings are accomplished with only top quality archival artists materials and papers.
