Jan Wier has worked for over 25 years with interior design clients to bring beauty and grace to their homes which includes placing art, Jan has learned to meld what the client desires in their home; visual impact while reflecting their personal tastes. Always hungry for color, beauty and harmony in her painting, Jan seeks to reflect the grace notes of welcome that people desire in their homes and lives - that well placed cherished vase, fresh flowers, or perhaps even a happy cupcake! Jan's paintings are done in oil on canvas or board with a luscious use of creamy oil paint. Jan's painting style is loose and impressionistic with nothing too perfect; life is more interesting that way.
Jan's goal is to have her artwork bring a heartbeat of joy, color, and light to life

JUDY MCCABE JARVIS
Throughout her decades-spanning professional career in the Greater Philadelphia Area, Judy McCabe Jarvis has established herself as one of the region’s foremost painterly realists, depicting the familiar subject matter of the landscape through abstracted lens.
Having developed her craft since early childhood, she graduated from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with a BFA in Painting, spending 5 months of her education studying the Masters in Rome, Italy.
Inspired by color and the environmental diversity of the area surrounding her home, she enjoys high intensity hues in the most unexpected places on her canvas and feels especially rewarded with plein air painting. Challenged by nature – picking bugs off the canvas, wrestling high winds and a boiling sun – plein air allows her to connect both creatively and physically to her subject.
Not limited to the land, however, she is also a student of still life. Attracted to the glistening reflections of the bottles and glass, the intimate beauty of a tea cup and the organic beauty of fruits and vegetables, still life offers its own challenges – negotiating the light, subject and perspective all within her quite of her studio.
Whether it be the rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley or the delicate grouping of gin bottles, Judy McCabe Jarvis’s art aims to capture and slow the viewer so they might look at a small slice of life and see something more, whether it be wit, beauty or moody light.
