Jan Pope, Raleigh, NC Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement Drawing and painting are my way to show you, the viewer, what I see. I aim for realism so that you can recognize the subject matter. But I try to show you more, the detail of a leaf or flower petal or the subtlety of color. As a native North Carolinian, I'm inspired by the state's variety of landscapes, plants and wildlife.
I work in artists' colored pencils, acrylics, watercolor and a mixture of these medias.
I have been drawing and painting since grammar school and have had some formal training in technical drawing and graphics. In the past few years, I have started to exhibit and sell my works.
I am a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America.
