Jan Gaudreau

The work of Jan Gaudreau continues to evolve, ranging from realism to impressionism. ┬áHer painters eye is attracted to unique shapes and spaces created by man or nature: images of cityscapes and flowers and seascapes, including the often-overlooked bits and pieces of everyday life found in the home. But whatever the subject matter — whether in a bustling city or quiet Nantucket — Gaudreau strives to capture the elusive atmosphere and feeling, recording it on paper or canvas, asking the viewer to pause and ponder the play of light, shadow and color offered in these serendipitous moments. She has a natural feel for the lightness and delicacy of watercolor and her impressionistic oils and semi-abstract watercolors have found favor in many private collections.
