BIOGRAPHY

Jan is a retired Postal Manager.  Since retiring  she  divideds her time between Ohio and Florida where she has taught watercolor classes and workshops in Central Florida.  


 Jan is mainly self-taught; however she has studied annually with nationally known artists such as Chen Khee Chee, Nicholas Simmons, Thomas Schaller, Frank Webb, Rose Edin, Jan Kunz, and Arletta Pech.  In 2006 she traveled to Terni, Itally to study at LaRomita Art School.   


She has become known for watercolors in a Batik Style on rice paper.  The process of layering paint and hot melted wax is tedious, but Fetters says she loves working on a piece sometimes for weeks on large pieces.  

Jan has artwork in business, government and medical buildings.  She has been featured in Watercolor Magic Magazine.  She is a Signature Member of Florida Watercolor Society, a member of Ohio Watercolor Society and TaWS.
