Jan Farrell

Jan has received many awards, notably the Walkom Manning print prize, 2003.

A proud founding member of Open Bite Printmakers Jan has held many committee positions, currently co-exhibition manager.

Inspired by many travels, Jan’s seductive prints are the result of many layers and transformations. Her favourite media include collagraphs, etchings, solar prints, and monotypes.  The monotypes are lively and exciting, having a painterly quality. Many prints are the end product of multiple plates.  Often there is an element of mystery and fun in her prints. Her prints are held Australia-wide and overseas.
