Biography


Artist Statement
 
"I am a contemporary representational painter. My paintings are inspired by the effects of light, whether on a foggy morning, on a sunlit summer afternoon, or during the urban twilight. My goal is to give the viewer an authentic sense of the landscape, not by providing a photorealistic rendering but by conveying the mood of being present within the landscape. The opportunity to paint en plein air has allowed me to share my vision of the Wisconsin landscape and has further informed my studio work."
 
 
Biography
 
Jan Feyzi initially started painting watercolors in the mid 1990s, balancing her desire to paint with family life and her job as a biostatistician.  Her early paintings were mostly watercolor florals and still lifes.  In 2013, she decided to take the leap into the world of oils, which is now her primary medium.   Jan has spent her entire life in Wisconsin and is continually inspired by its landscapes and urbanscapes. After retiring from her job, she now devotes herself full time to her passion for oil painting.
