Background

Jan Sullivan Fowler is a contemporary Artist working in Japanese Handmade Washi paper and acrylics to create paintings with a unique flowing form. JSF Studios exemplifies "Life as Art".

Statement

I’ve been creating with the Gossamer thin Japanese handmade Washi paper since the early 80’s when, one of my diptychs appeared in the movie ‘Risky Business’ as the quintessential Chicago artwork.

My color mixing techniques were originally developed centuries ago, by Monks, to portray the ‘blush’ of their Cherry blossoms.

In Japan, Washi (wa meaning Japanese, shi meaning paper) paper is a refined art form in itself, so…I create art, with art.
