Jan Thomson

Capturing light and mood, getting people to notice places and things that we often take for granted , I strive to create paintings that capture the way I see the world.

I work in both watercolour and acrylic , and am working towards a “less is more” philosophy of painting – leaving space for the viewer to enjoy the mysteries of slightly abstract details!

We moved to St.Arnaud from Wellington eight years ago, and now I work full time from my studio at 10 Rangeview Rd, which is open to visitors. I also run watercolour workshops and am happy to discuss commissions .

My work is held in private collections both in New Zealand and overseas.


I have held regular solo exhibitions, currently I am a member of both the Suter Gallery , Watercolour NZ and Marlborough Art Society.
