Pet Art by Jan Zeigler, was started in 2003.  A newspaper article about her appeared in the Tri-Valley Herald, April 11, 2007.

Jan has taken art instruction from several local instructors, but most of her work has been self-taught. She has painted with acrylics, oils, watercolors, and soft pastels on canvas, paper, greeting cards, wood and rocks.  The subjects have included landscapes, still life, portraits of people and animals.  Her other interests include the welfare of animals.  Jan has combined this interest to focus on the love of animals, to paint pet portraits (and their people when requested) in soft pastels.  Jan uses soft pastels with velour paper, which gives a delicate and lifelike look to her paintings.  She takes pictures of dogs she encounters on walks and uses these photographs as the basis for her work on a particular breed.  She also accepts commissions to paint individual pets.

 Janís work is currently on display in ABC Pet Clinic, San Ramon, CA.  Her paintings have been shown at Comerica Bank in San Ramon, Murphy's Paw and Studio 7 in Pleasanton, Danville Doggie Night, Three Dog Bakery, Just Dogs, and the San Ramon Banner Project and Open Studio Event.

 Her artwork has been shown in the Alameda County Fair Fine Arts Exhibit, where she received a Silver Award and two Honorable Mention Rosettes.  She has also received two First Place Pastel Awards at the San Ramon Art Walk & Festival.

 She has donated her art for fundraisers to Tri-Valley Animal Rescue, CASA, The Biletnikoff Foundation, and the Cocker Spaniel Rescue of New England.

 Jan was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma.  She attended the University of Oklahoma and majored in Business Administration.  She is a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority and the Citizen Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma. She has also been a member of  the San Ramon Arts Foundation and the Lamorinda Arts Alliance. She is an active volunteer for Tri-Valley Animal Rescue.

She moved to California in 1969 and worked for Trans International Airlines (Transamerica Airlines) in the Accounting, Fleet Planning, and Data Processing Departments.  While working at the airline, she met her husband, Gary.  They have been married since 1973.
