Jan Gardner

I am a professional artist based in Conwy. I love colour! I create vibrant `mixed media` images based on my responses and observations and my fascination with colour, form, texture and mark-making. I supply my original, unique work to galleries for exhibitions, numerous art fairs around the UK and worldwide. I am part of the visual arts team at Conway Centres: Anglesey.
I  am currently working on new pieces on canvas and continuing work on hand-made water-colour paper. I am always experimenting with new ideas which I have been developing in my imagination for years and are now making there way into the wonderful wide-world. In 2007 I was awarded an Arts Council of Wales project grant titled `Colour Secrets` to research contemporary producers` practice for the processing of modern pigment production and also to explore the origins of palette colour in history.
My parallel passion is working alongside others, I have considerable experience with a range of community groups, ages and abilities. My commitment to encourage and inspire others is evident in the work done to date with Engage (National Association for Gallery Education) research project working with older people with early onset Alzheimers, Arts in Health haemodialysis patients and cancer patients (Ysbyty Glan Clwyd,Bodelwyddan), Foundation, Primary, Secondary and Higher Education students in Wales and North West. I enjoy the catalyst role of watching others on their own artistic journey. I lead residencies, `Masterclasses`, and attend national and international conferences and seminar presentations sharing my experience.
