Jana L. Bussanich Art

Expressing a whole-life approach to art-making,

Jana L. Bussanich's Art

captures the inward-outward flow of who she is, inviting and welcoming relationship and response as her vivid imprint of love in the world. A relentless learner committed to authentic emergence, Jana has built a skill set in the visual arts that makes an arts-based reality and a more full life-expression of existence possible. She lives and moves and speaks  - and makes art in the world - full of integrity and outward expression of her inward person.

I have known and collected Jana’s work for years. She is possibly the most dedicated artist I know, to her craft, to her students, and to her values as a perpetual learner. Her pieces meld a sense of place geographically, a high dedication to detail, along with touches of whimsy. It is a delight to have her work in my home and office.

Jana educates me, both in art and in life. When she teaches a technique, she explains the "why" and how it "feels" — i.e., how does it "feel" to move a bead of water across the paper, versus a dry brush on the paper. She uses stories of moments from her own life to encourage us in our journey of making art, helping us understand why it's hard at times, why there may be setbacks, but how to keep going and never give up. I love her classes.

I've studied with Jana Bussanich for two and a half years now, and I can't imagine not studying with her currently. She gave me all the tools I needed to pursue my artistic path, and now she coaches me through my growth as an artist. Life-changing!
