Jan Eubanks, to her great joy, believes the essence of painting is very liberating. She uses an "Impressionistic Alla Prima" style of painting to convey her ideas through landscapes and floral, in both Plein Air and Studio Painting. Her motivation in painting is to react to the beauty of the world and create a lasting memory of the moment. Jan's visceral landscapes are often based on wonder and imagination, and her stylistic approach is often compared to reflections of a dreamlike reality. She feels that a painting should speak to the heart and soul through passion, color, and the handling of paint. Jan grew up taking many trips to The Art Institute of Chicago and took numerous classes, eventually studying art at the University of Georgia. She took some time off while raising her two children, beginning to draw and paint again once they were grown. Changes in life and looking at her own collection of art in the home inspired her to express herself through painting and create fine art that could be passed down through generations. Jan states that she wants her painting to be visually exciting and poetic. She describes her painting style as landing somewhere between realism and expressive contemporary, where "sincerity is honored but still challenges the viewer."
