Jan Sullivan Fowler
(South Milwaukee, WI, United States)
Jan Sullivan Fowler is a contemporary Artist working in Japanese Handmade Washi paper and acrylics to create paintings with a unique flowing form.
Her Mom (Kay Sullivan) introduced her to art as a child and later on to Washi paper. She grew up doing art with her at Elm Grove, Wisconsin. She received her degree in Fine Arts from Milwaukee School of Art (now MIAD) in the 70’s, when this new mode of expression, Japanese handmade Washi paper, and acrylics became part of her life.
Exotic and esoteric natural papers (Japanese handmade Washi paper) are sourced with acrylics, to create a very Contemporary Oriental motif. Depth, color, and free-flowing form are the Trademarks of an Original piece of fine Art from Jan.
“My style has been referred to as “a new genre of Abstract/Moder”. In Japan, Washi (wa-meaning Japanese and shi -meaning paper) is an art form in itself so I would just say that… I create art with art.”
