|Inspired by the philosophy of Minor White as practiced by her mentor Professor Jean Locey, Jan's graduate thesis, titled Present Tense, derived from her study of natural forms which she found metaphorically expressive of her own inner feelings. Sixteen years later the digitally produced Il Fiore portfolio reflects this ongoing investigation, reflecting Jan’s love of flower imagery.
In 2002 Daisies and Day Lily Bud became a billboard image for the Arts of the Southern Finger Lakes’ Billboards ~ Just Down the Road project. Jan used an image of a peony taken in her backyard in June, 2003, for the cover photo of the artist’s book Honoring Your Love, Honoring Your Grief When Your Loved One Has Died. Jan designed the book and provided photographs in collaboration with writer and grievance counselor Chris Lloyd after being awarded an Artists Crossroads Grant through the Arts of the Southern Finger Lakes. Distribution of this book began in August, 2004.
