Seattle native Jan Koutsky finds inspiration in the deep traditions of color field painting and in the natural world around us.  Working in an abstract manner, Jan builds rich layers of colored pencil on paper, working in a gradual process to create subtle shifts in tone, giving a sense of space, depth and textural interest.

Jan Koutsky is an award winning author.  She taught for 38 years in the Art department at South Seattle College, and has numerous years of exhibition experience.  She now concentrates full time on her studio practice.
