Jann Dunton resides and works on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
Jann is influenced immensely by her environment and love for the sea and beach. She was a competitive long boarder winning an Open Womens Australian Title at Bells Beach in 1999.
Jann started painting 10 years ago. She painted along side Stewart Westle whom became a wonderful mentor and friend.
She works in oils as she loves the vibrant look they capture.
She has been heavily influenced by Ken Done whom she met on his local Chinaman’s Beach in Sydney. She always said she wanted to shake his hand and thank him for allowing her to paint in bright colours. Overwhelmed by their meeting arranged by a close friend, Jann and Ken walked and talked in the environment they both adore.
Jann is often found in her garage painting many different pieces at the one time. Colour is her signature.
