Jan Small specializes in stunning oil paintings created in a classic, old masters style. Although her subjects range from humans to horses, dogs remain her favorite. Dogs, she says, have personalities that don’t have to be coaxed, are devoid of self-conscious nature, and have a joy about being alive that is infectious. Jan lives on a small farm in Florida with her physician husband and family of miniature horses, dwarf goats, rescued potbelly pigs, chickens and of course, dogs.
Most of Jan’s work is done through private commission and she is devoted to using her skill to help animals in need through donations to rescue organizations and by creating custom portraits for large donors of her favorite groups.
