Exhibiting for the First Time at the Spring Fair, Jan Freeman will Unleash OnionJake - The British Doing What We Do BestWarwickshire based artist Jan Freeman presents her repertoire of British characters in their natural habitat. From seaside royalty to tall tales from the riverbank with a smattering of ladies of a certain age thrown in for good measure, you'll be enchanted by images originally composed in acrylics with various materials such as crisp packets, beads, sequins and ribbons.Harbury, Warwickshire, February 06, 2012 -- http://www.onionjake.com/about-onion-jake, Jan Freeman lives and works in the ancient town of Harbury in Warwickshire. Jan's passion for art has developed across a period of time and she actuallybegan painting initially as a hobby whilst resident in the USA. Jan's hobby ledto her work being exhibited in various galleries in the States. On arrival backin the UK Jan lost no time in setting up her easel and carried on painting withincreasing confidence and skill - her work soon came to the attention of galleries in Birmingham, Warwick and Stratford Upon Avon. Onion Jake was conceived after a taxi ride with a linguistically challenged French driver who mispronounced Union Jack! From there the characters that come to make up Jan's artistic familybegan to spring forth from the canvas with ever-increasing regularity. Jan beganto see people in a different light, amplifying the humour and irony in every day life. A scattering of acute observation of the British doing what they do best(relaxing, playing and working) makes Jan's work stand out from the crowd and brings a smile to all who stop to ponder life's funny moments, whether imagined or strangely familiar!Jan's stand at the Spring Fair NEC Birmingham will come alive with http://www.onionjake.com prints, cards and mugs - depicting her cast of snoozing beach babes,a seductive chocolate eating lady of a certain age and the girls getting readyfor a big night out. Visitors cannot fail to recognise these characters - we have all observed them but no one has so eloquently observed them and with such glee!Asked about her inspiration and plans for Onion Jake she replied: "The turning point in my artistic life was the realisation that in order to 'get my work out there' I needed to paint something that people recognised and felt comfortable orfamiliar with" she started looking around her at both celebrities and the greatBritish public. It dawned on her that we're all celebrities! We're all characters with a story to tell and with just a look or a particular expression we can turn an every day situation into an opportunity for fun" Jan is particularly proud of her http://www.onionjake.com/limited-edition-prints.html, Limited EditionPrints which, aside from the originals, really show her work at its best. OnionJake really has bought Jan a great deal of joy and laughter and she looks forward to sharing her work with the very people who inspire it.Jan Freeman works from her studio in Warwickshire where she has run workshops for adults for over a decade now. 2012 marks an important year for Jan's career asshe establishes her work on a national level and hopes to grab the attention ofboth the public and publishers.Submitted By:Chris Fickling - ibrow media ltd.Contact:Jan FreemanJan freeman Artist LtdChurch House, Crown StHarbury, WarwickshireUK, CV33 9HE+44 (0)1926 614251
