Jan Mnich - watercolour artist

Jan has been working as an artist for the last 30 years.

Her paintings are all watercolours a medium which Jan finds most appropriate for the qualities she tries to achieve.

In 2000 Jan exhibited 'Purple Flower' at The Royal Watercolour Society, London. Since then she has shown her work in various galleries and exhibitions throughout the south of England, and also reguarly exhibits in her own open house, Mnich’s Mix, during the Brighton Festival.

Colour atmosphere is probably the most significant challenge with the environments she tries to evoke.

Travelling, landscape and architecture are also important inspirations. Recent work has been influenced by the light in the mediterranean, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco. Other influences are water, in particular it’s changing quality and the way it reflects its surroundings. 

Jan has always loved being by the sea. Since moving to Rottingdean, in Sussex, the south downs and coast are more evident in her recent paintings.
