Jan Monaghan took up painting in retirement for relaxation, and to help with mental health. Jan found much companionship in the group members at Articulationz, who have also had a positive influence.
Jan had never painted before, nor had any lessons, but has found creating art to be the ultimate mindfulness experience.
When painting, Jan drifts into another dimension and likes to try different subjects and perspectives, usually starting out with a photo - but the photo is often discarded once the painting takes on a life of its own!
"I enjoy painting gardens, and water always seems to be a calming feature."
