Jan Deligans received a bachelor of arts in fine art degree at Meredith College, Raleigh, NC with emphasis on classical drawing and painting in 1990.
She moved to Santa Fe, NM in 2001 and then to Chimayo in 2012 where she currently resides on an eight acre lot with a large pond, a river running through it and a tradional passive solar adobe home
Earned an MA degree in digital art at Highlands University at Las Vegas, NM in 3D imaging in 2007
Jan has worked in photography, website design, graphic design and commissioned portraits as well as selling her original oils.
Now Jan is concentrating on letting go of all the mechanical and digital tools of the past and return to just the use of her own eyes and hands. Primarily working en plain air is like meditation at it’s best.
Jan attempts to clear her mind of rules and just let the light and air speak directly.
This is perhaps a way to more deeply connect to the reality of ourselves as part of nature.
She tries to experience that connection in her paintings.
