About me

Jan Cavanagh is a fine artist living and working in Chester, Cheshire. Graduating from Sheffield Polytechnic in 1991, she pursued a career in graphic design. Although she has always painted, using oils at a very young age she started to develop her practice as an artist alongside raising her family. Working in oil paint and sculpture, she is drawn to figurative work and a lifelong love of horses and animals. Her work shows strength, attention to form and observation.


Jan was recently awarded  Highly Commended for her piece ‘Reaching Horse’ at Castle Park Arts Open Exhibition 2022 and has established herself as a local and regional artist. Jan runs art classes through her company ArtJam and sells her work and prints here on her website.
