As founder of Arterial, Jan has bought over 25 years experience in the visual arts and design. Over this time she has developed a wealth of experience in generating ideas for exciting, achievable solutions across a broad range of projects. 

Jan is a skilled creative who has mastered many design mediums to tell compelling stories. Her experience spans exhibition design, design management, visual arts, and theatre, exploring within these contexts the narrative and conceptual power of video, photography, text, 2D graphic design and 3D form. For Jan,  Arterial Design represents a unique convergence of the various threads in her creative experience, giving her the opportunity to translate her extensive theatre, design, visual arts, and management skills into compelling interpretive design projects. 

“I love to undertake extensive research into all interpretive design projects, the subject matter of which is always unique. My role requires that I collate and assimilate stories into a wide range of creative mediums. Translating this research into fascinating and engaging interpretive design that positively contributes to public spaces and the communities that utilise them is my passion.”
