I have learnt more in the 7 weeks than I have in all the years I have been involved in the arts! It was the best thing I ever did. You were an amazing artist, teacher and role model for us all.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful course. I have learnt so much…far more than I could have imagined, in a relatively short time…and I thank you for being such an inspiring teacher. I am so happy to have had this experience reignite my passion for creating art, as it is something I have wanted to get back into for years. I would love to enrol in another course in the future, so will definitely be in touch again.
Many, many thanks for this morning’s attention and advice. I felt that I learnt so much in such a short space of time, and you gave advice I can readily apply and act on. When I left I felt I couldn’t wait to get back to my painting!
See you next week.

Firstly I must say how interesting & informative your demonstration was to the Armadale Society of Artists. You certainly have the gift of holding your audience, it was a delight.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your very kindness and patience in tutoring me in the workshops. For the first time in my life I feel I am genuinely being nurtured in a kind and loving manner and I really appreciate you.
I am so impressed that not only are you a gifted artist, but you are also a brilliant teacher who never makes us feel foolish or inept. Thank you, Jana, for your absolute kindness. It is really a privilege to be your student.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Agora Gallery in NY for their opening reception with your works in the “Out From Down Under & Beyond” exhibition. And I must say, I was really, really, really impressed and a HUGE fan of your works. Out of all, including the other exhibition, you were my favorite out of the whole artists displayed that night, May 11. And looking at some that displayed the walls with you, I was kind of shocked of some of the other artworks that Agora Gallery had on the walls.
I would like to state that I have been learning to paint with Jana for almost 2 years now. Until I came to Jana I had been feeling frustrated because previous teachers were unable to give clear instructions and often seemed to simply confuse me more than I already was. Since being with Jana my work has improved immeasurably and I look forward to further great things. Jana is a very good teacher, precise and only too happy to share her knowledge. I wish her well in any endeavour she undertakes.
Both Paul and I keep admiring your wonderful work on our dome and are thinking up new projects for you in the future, but don’t worry they will be in the new year. We thank you again for completing this project for us & for your professionalism and great artistic ability, you were a pleasure to have in our home. We would love to have you back.
