Jan comes from a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan surrounded by the beauty of Lake Superior. She grew up in a Finnish-American family, and was taught the values of simplicity, organization, and a good pun. She graduated from a local engineering university with degrees in Computer Science and Business Administration, and is a software professional by trade.

She spent her earlier life as an artist wannabe living in such places as upstate New York and Paris before settling in Seattle 20 years ago. After many years as a successful commercial software executive, she found another passion to augment her creativity – watercolor painting.

Jan chose watercolors for their spontaneity. She enjoys painting loosely, playing with colors, and letting the paints flow together naturally. Mostly self-taught, she has developed minimalistic abstract style with a wry sense of humor representative of her Finnish-American roots.
