the Artist-Jan Sullivan Fowler

Growing up in the Village of Elm Grove Wisconsin doing art with my Mom was just as wonderful as it sounds. After earning my degree in Fine Art, I began collaborating with my Mother Kay Sullivan, in the sophisticated and very refined Japanese handmade Washi paper painted with acrylics. We would exhibit at all the largest Shows and one of my paintings was selected and appeared in the major Hollywood movie "Risky Business" with Tom Cruise as the quintessential Chicago art.

In Japan, Washi is an Artform in itself so, it can be said...I create Art with Art!

"Washi Spirit" "Man is the river, Man is the Rain. Man is the wave. Water is the medium. And Washi is the water's spirit.

It's first secret is awakening. All life comes from water. So the Washi does.

It's second secret is relieving. Born floating in the water, Washi transmits weightlessness.

It's third secret is soothing. Moving with the waters flow, the fibers gather naturally in the most harmonic way.

It's forth secret is reminding. Slowly build up by the movement, it's structure is the memory of the time passed for it's making.

It's fifth secret is enlightening. Light moves through the fibers until it is released according to the Washi's structure in never ending ways"

I want share these secrets and provide people the awaking, relieving, soothing, reminding and enlightening presence of Washi in their homes and Lives.
