Jan Mayer is a photographer who came to art from a background in science. She had the curiosity to discern the complexity of things and a vision to translate and embellish upon what she saw. Jan recognized that nature underscores its exquisite intricacy of design and seductive allure for function in the natural world. This fundamental integration is the piece that compels her pursuit of photographing what she sees and carrying it further into what her fantasy will reveal. She does that by using techniques in digital photography that render her images more painterly in nature.
