Jan Stapleton - Contemporary Representational Artist
Jan Stapleton has been exhibiting in prominent Sydney galleries for over twenty years. Born in 1950 she initially graduated in Science and worked as a Medical Microbiologist. Moving from Sydney to Orange in 1983 enabled her to pursue her passion for outdoor painting and this experience was to have a lasting influence on her work. Following a return to Sydney she continued to study and exhibit and attended workshops/master classes with many Sydney prominent artists.
Best known for ten years for her works in pastel, she reshaped and redefined her visual language with later works in mixed media, acrylic & oil. Themes of women from earlier works were developed into more universal/ mythological female images. Landscape themes are explored in a more experimental and poetic manner and her current landscape paintings reflect this. She is represented in private collections in Australia and overseas and recent works have been selected for major survey exhibitions at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery NSW.
