Last year we began a series of blog posts, each Saturday, that took you into the studios of our artists. It's always so interesting to get a glimpse of the work space of artists and how much they vary from one another. We firmly believe that when we take the time to learn more about the artists process and who they are as people too, we can break down barriers that may be there for some people and expose art to everyone.

Welcome to the second Studio Saturday of the series! Today we're taking you into the studio of artist Jan Davison! Davison is a Halifax-based artist and graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Davison is known for her colourful local scenes and streetscapes, capturing the heart and soul of the city in her work.

Davison works primarily in acrylics and usually begins her work with a bold red underpainting, which sets the tone for the painting.

Davison is a big supporter of the local community, connecting with people and promoting local establishments by celebrating them in her work.
