Early American Life
Jan, a well-known artist whose medium includes wood, tin and painted collectibles, is proud that no piece is mass produced. Each piece is individually made and each instilled with pride of workmanship.
Her work is represented in numerous private collections. Jan regularly participates in the Designer Show Houses and Art Exhibits.All works are original pieces. At times, some are influenced by museum originals or historically documented designs. They may be similar, but no one will be exactly the same because of the variations of commissioned work. Orders are invited on an individual basis.
Through the years we have assisted Jan with many projects concerning artwork, framing or custom mirrors for her clients. Her design work is always top match and very well executed. I would happily recommend Jan to anyone looking for a design professional to help them accomplish their interior design goals for their home or business. -- Roy Karlen, Leonardo's Art & Prints .
My chair pictures look amazing in the keeping room. They look like they were made for the room. I am delighted that so much of my home has the “Jan Abbe” touch all throughout. It brings peace to my heart and a smile to my face. -- K.R.
I have finally visited your website and once again YOU have created yet one more treat for my sorry old eyes. YOU are truly blessed with the talent and skills for creating magnificient beauty. May God continue to bless you so richly. -- R.A.
