About Jan Vermilya

Jan is an artist who’s been expressing herself creatively since early childhood.   Born in a time when art was not considered gainful employment, she pursued a medical career.  But art has remained her avocation throughout.

“Fun” is a workshop or a painting session either indoors or “en plein aire” with friends.  Beginning with Sumi-e (oriental brush painting with hand ground inks & rice paper) she transitioned to western watercolors and showed/sold her work in Virginia and North Carolina before moving to Florida.. 
Now that she’s retired, she’s painting again using acrylics or water soluble oil paints on canvas, as well as watercolors on paper or canvas and pastels on sanded paper!  Jan takes commissions and will paint on anything that doesn’t run away!!!!  That includes furniture, statuary, tiles and wall murals.  Pet portraits are a specialty!
Gallery affiliations include:  Florida Artist Gallery (Floral City), The Brick (Ocala), Gateway Gallery (New Port Richey and the Uptown Gallery (Brooksville).
