Jan Eker went to Fort Hays State University and graduated with a BA degree in art in 1971. She later studied Graphic and Fine Art from the Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design in Denver , CO . Though the last twenty-some years of her life have been dominated by her family, Jan finally returned to her artwork in recent years. Jan works primarily in pencil, watercolor pencil and acrylic. She often does portraits, but she also enjoys landscapes, abstracts, still life…anything she sees that inspires her.
In February, 2003, Jan’s house was destroyed by a fire and all belongings were lost, including thirty years of artwork. For this reason, many prints have been reproduced from digital or web photographs. Jan is slowly rebuilding her inventory, as well as expanding into new areas. Her Great Dreams are becoming a reality.
