Jan Rasmussen was born on the South Island’s West Coast. Having established herself as a landscape artist she now paints in a wide range of subjects and media.

She recently moved back to Central Otago to live and has built a lovely new studio/gallery in the main street of Clyde.  

Her most recent work depicts scenes such as the mountains and lake around Central Otago, vineyards and even street scenes, as well as the iconic landscape of the South Island.

Her work spanning the last 45 years has been sold to collectors both in New Zealand and overseas.

Jan draws inspiration from the different areas she has lived in over the years – Bay of Plenty, Central Otago, Canterbury – and more recently from her visits to Italy, France and the Greek islands.
