Jan Fontecchio paints the wildlife, landscapes, and people of the West. Growing up on  a ranch gave her a lifelong interest in three things; horses, the western landscape, and studying the animals around her. At 15, her paintings were accepted for representation by an exclusive gallery in Cambria, CA. While attaining her degree in Fine Art, Fontecchio cared for exotic big cats, trained dolphins, and became a proficient diver.

Jan continually educates herself in fine art and oil painting, studying under modern masters like G. Beecham and S. Bhosle. She also blogs at ispyanimals.com, where she teaches children about the amazing animals in our world.
