  • Jan Davison, Nova Scotia.

  • Jan Davison is a painter based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Davison graduated from NSCAD University with her Bachelor of Fine Art degree in 2001. She also studied at a painting studio semester abroad at Wimbledon School of the Arts in 2021. With the use of vivid colour she represents the streets of Halifax. Hailing from a line of architects, Davison grew up around great design. She is enthusiastic about sun and warmth and often uses vermillion red as her starting point. “I often see the South of France on our streets - in the summer under a certain light - we are on the same longitudinal line as Nice, in fact. This fuels my inspiration and our local home owners’ paint choices act as a collaboration.”
