Jan Petrie



Jan was born and grew up in rural Gloucestershire. She gained a Humanities Degree - studying English and Social Sciences, and then a PGCE from Bristol University before becoming an English teacher.

She began painting professionally when her children were young, exhibiting widely, mostly in watercolours, in Sussex and Kent including Brighton, Rye, Hastings and Tunbridge Wells.

After completing a Foundation Diploma, specialising in painting, at West Kent College, she began working on a larger scale in acrylics and mixed media.

Since then her work has further evolved and she now works mainly in oils on canvas. Jan has continued to exhibit in the Home Counties, but has recently moved back to Gloucestershire where she has established a studio, through Stroud Valley Arts, in Griffin Mill near Stroud. Some of her paintings can currently be seen at the Thin Dog Gallery in Cirencester. Details of her forthcoming exhibitions will be posted on this website shortly.
