Jan Dingle originally studied Graphic Design at Hornsey College of Art turning to etching almost by chance many years later while raising a family.
Her landscape etchings are based on the Norfolk broads where she cruises frequently. Away from the stresses of modern city life Jan seeks to portray a sense of peace and tranquillity and to capture the flavour of the area in minutely detailed images of rivers and pathways, grazing meadows and cornfields, fields and fens, and ditches and hedgerows.
Over the years Jan has watched the landscape change its mask as attitudes change the environment from the intense arable farming of recent years to the conservation concern and return to pastoral farming now taking place. The landscape never rests and so provides a constant source of inspiration.
Jan has successfully exhibited at the R.A. Summer Exhibition and with other major societies, one-person and mixed exhibitions including the Print Consortiums' English Printmakers exhibition.
