About the artist:

Jan Ledbetter NWS

JAN LEDBETTER’S watermedia paintings are pictorial tapestries layering observations and imagination, design elements, abstract motifs, and personal symbols. Though models often pose for her figurative work, she is never interested in creating an exact likeness, but rather in using the figure as a design element. By exploring the relationships of value, shape, texture and color, she leads the viewer on a creative journey through each painting. Travels throughout Central and South America and giving numerous painting workshops in Ecuador and Guatemala have greatly influenced her subject matter. Many of Jan’s recent paintings record her impressions of the Maya women in Guatemala's colorful marketplace.

Currently Jan has paintings in both the prestigious American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society 2011 Traveling Exhibitions which are going to museums and galleries throughout the United States. Her paintings are held in private collections around the world and have been reproduced on posters for charitable events and art festivals. The American Artist Watercolor Magazine, featured her paintings in an article titled “The Joy of Paint and Paper,” winter 2007, and several of her paintings were included in Mary Todd Beam’s book “The Creative Edge”. Balancing painting, teaching, and giving international workshops, her work reflects the joy and passion that she brings to every aspect of her life. She has taught and exhibited her paintings for over 30 years.
