“Listen.

If you listen closely, you can see more and learn more.

I have had a long time interest in learning about how I see. As I am looking at things in the natural world, I often try and observe my looking, and I have started to be aware of just how much the other senses play a part in this.”

 

ABOUT

A native Californian, Jan Wagstaff was born and raised in the town of Larkspur in Marin County. Inheriting her creative genes from a grandfather who was a San Francisco artist and architect, Wagstaff learned to paint as a young girl, attempting to copy his watercolors. She also studied and danced classical ballet until her early twenties.

Wagstaff received her formal art training at Oakland’s renowned California College of the Arts, where she earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in textiles. For eight years after graduating, she directed a progressive textile department combining weaving and painting on woven canvases at California State University Chico.

Over the past four decades Jan Wagstaff’s paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries world-wide and acquired for private and public collections around the globe. Her artwork has garnered extensive reviews, and she has been awarded numerous Artist-in-Residence opportunities, grants, fellowships and prizes.
