Jan Norsetter, VGM
Jan Norsetter is an award-winning oil painter known for vibrant landscape paintings in plein-air and evocatively detailed studies in still life. Norsetter also practices the decorative art of rosemaling, using skill and an artist’s sensibility to embellish items traditional and modern in an age-old form.
Jan was awarded the Vesterheim Gold Medal in rosemaling in July, 2018. In addition to her work as an artist, Norsetter teaches landscape painting and rosemaling.
Jan paints in plein-air (painting in the open air) to imbue her paintings with a sense of place. She works outdoors in every season, painting close to home in Wisconsin and on travels in the United States and overseas to Italy, Ireland, Scotland, France, and Norway.
She has exhibited in more than 40 juried, collaborative or solo art shows. Selected paintings, prints and her rosemaling are in many permanent and private collections across the country and Europe. Awards include top honors in numerous plein air competitions and rosemaling exhibitions.
