The Life and Work of Janet Faith Jordan
Compiled and written by Sophia Caramanoff.
With an introduction by Marjatta van Boeschoten.

The Life and Work of Janet Faith Jordan explores the artist Janet Jordan’s rich biography alongside insights into 42 of her paintings depicting three themes present throughout her artistic career: Nature, Spirituality, and The Dream Song of Olaf Asteson. At the core of her work is the desire to use colour to transcend her ego and create a universal, soul experience for both herself and the beholder.

Janet Jordan’s impressive biography encapsulates a commitment to teaching and contentment in family life, culminating in a dedication to an artistic career during her retirement. The book also delves into the inspiration and painting technique underpinning her creations, such as Goethe’s theory of colour and her work with Beppe Assenza. Another influence in Janet’s pieces is Liane Collot d’Herbois’ ‘veil painting’ technique, used to delicately portray the dynamic interplay of light and dark.

Janet Jordan’s exquisite imagination is brought to life in every page of this finely-crafted, hardback publication, showcasing the perfect amalgamation of an artistic and personal life worth celebrating. The reader is encouraged to view Jordan’s art with an understanding of the connection between the artistic and spiritual world, whilst also envisioning their own perceptions through their own visual enjoyment.
