A Message from Jan
I’ve made portraits of many wonderful animals, from dogs and cats to horses and turtles and everything in-between. Even people. I have decided to retire and concentrate on my grandkids and quilting for family and friends. I want to thank all my clients from my heart. It’s been such a blessing working for people who also love and adore animals. It has been so fulfilling and I’ve enjoyed getting to know you all and learn your pets’ stories. I will miss all the sweet faces coming my way, but feel it’s time to move on. My web site will remain up until the hosting expires in July. Thanks again, and be well-you AND your beloved pets.

Carolyn's Quilt "Running Wild Farm"
Running Wild Farm: This is a 5-year project Jan created for Carolyn,
at Carolyn’s pace, and has 39 custom animal portraits.
These are all (well, almost all) the animals she has ever had
or has now.
This is the 7th project Jan has created for Carolyn, and
hopefully not the last. It was picked up by Carolyn on
8.31.13. It was made to fit the space above Carolyn’s couch.
Now to figure out how to keep the cats from climbing it…..
The wonderful thing is that these are all rescue animals.
One of Carolyn’s three daughters is a local veterinarian,
so Carolyn hears of WAY too many needy animals.
Dimensions: 68” high X 82” wide
Mermaid quilt: This project was made for Jan’s quilt guild’s summer
challenge. The challenge: create a quilt around ONE bead or button.
The quilt can be no larger than 18” x 24”.
Jan found this button that looks like a sea anemone and
found the perfect “bra” for her mermaid.

Due to the high number
of requests that Jan receives for donations,
and her desire to fill as many of these requests as possible, she
finds it necessary to request 25% of the proceeds from each donation,
in order to recover her costs and enable her to continue to help
rescue organizations across the country.
If you submit a request
for a donation, please be aware of this necessity. Jan only donates
to rescue organizations and shelters, not breed groups or clubs.
Thank you and continue
your good work saving our innocent animal friends.
