About Jan Kellett – Qualicum Beach, BC
Jan Kellet was born and raised in England. After various careers, she studied bookbinding and botanical painting and drawing at Malvern Hills College of Arts and Crafts in the UK.
She became fascinated with miniature books and started to write, print, illustrate and bind them. Jan combined her love of Shakespeare with her love of miniature books and over the years published several editions relating to his work, of which Shakespeare’s Flowers was the first.
Shakespeare’s Flowers was letterpress printed on handmade paper and hand-coloured. It won a Distinguished Book Award (Miniature Book Society). Although she has ceased making miniature books, they can be seen at: dewaldenpress.com
In recent years, Jan has enjoyed transitioning into printmaking, updating her skills, and making mostly one-of-a-kind monoprints.
The framed works here are copies of pages from Shakespeare’s Flowers.
