In this month’s artist series, we proudly feature artwork by local artist Jan Killian of Woolyfrog Arts. Her whimsical animals are brought to life with character of their own!
From her bio, Jan says:
“Art has filled Jan’s life exploring many mediums from acrylic, watercolor, to alcohol ink. Jan is a self-taught artist and has always been strongly attracted to color. Her love of photography and nature is the basis of her paintings, with a twist of imagination to bring about the whimsy in her art. Jan’s art is published in Cathy Taylor’s book, Pigment of Your Imagination, and has been featured in several magazines. Currently she displays in over 13 juried art shows throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota, and you can find her artwork in 9 shops and galleries.
Jan’s first love has always been animals and birds. She worked as a certified veterinary technician, owned the Bed & Biscuit Boarding Kennel for 23 years, was an office manager at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary, showed in obedience trials with her Golden Retrievers, and was a foster/training home to many rescue animals. She now enjoys life in Cumberland, WI with her husband Barry, 2 rescue dogs, 4 rescue cats, a house rabbit, and 4 birds while painting full time.” - Jan Killian, Cumberland, WI
