I am Currently working as a full time artist/teacher and designer of weather resistant art for the outdoors,. I work in various mediums using an energetic and bold style to express myself. I have now ventured into clothing design and all my pieces are either created from my art images or hand painted and embellished.
My paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums
throughout the mid west, including, Table Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University, The
Swope Art Museum in Terre Haute, Indiana, and the Lakeland Library Gallery at Lake-
land Junior College in Mattoon, Illinois. In addition, My work is in public and corporate
collections including those of the Hendelmeyer Park, the Cultural Center, and the Effingham Medical Center. I currently work at my Studio in Effingham ,Illinois. I conduct workshops and display my work in my home gallery. My art can be viewed at www.janvonbokel.com or www.patiopaintings.com
