Jan is a sixty-eight year old artist mostly working in oils and acrylics, who is drawn to the subject matter through being a keen yachtswoman of some twenty-five years’ standing but who is interested in the historical, post-industrial heritage of the area that she loves. She feels the need to make a visual record of both the Liverpool and the Birkenhead docks before they disappear from our landscape; again, architecturally the power and lines of these structures reflects a past of confidence and optimism; and the tones of the brickwork, of the buildings surrounding the docks and the starkness of the cranes set against the skyline engender awe and inspiration.P1040879 (2)
