What makes Jan’s work so respected and so popular? Like all top artists, her work is unique. For instance,, Jan uses watercolors, which is an exacting medium for a painter because the artist can’t paint over mistakes. To get the effect she wants in her paintings, she uses a very simple palette. "I don’t use straight primary colors because to me they’re very harsh," says Jan. "I want a colorful, but muted look. I paint in just enough contrast that the paintings don’t look flat. Speaking further about her work, she is quoted as saying"I believe that the Victorian period had something to say to us. In this busy world we need to remember the value of romanticism and the quality of fine handmade things. I want my art to provide these things."
Jan’s beautiful romantic designs translate quite well for the needle artist. Simply entitled Carol's Stocking, this adorable little girl with baby doll in hand is a wonderful addition to any Victorian style collection. A Gallery Style design with the artist’s painting already printed on the fabric, you’ll add your own needleartistry to that of Ms. Hagara’s to create a collaboration of love that will last a lifetime.
