What People Are Saying...
"Asking someone to create a painting for you from a concept in your mind is akin to asking her to read your mind. Yet armed with only a few vague suggestions, Jana produced a gorgeous palette of red poppies that reside in my living room. The work makes me happy each time I gaze at it. It's as if they are smiling as they open themselves up to the heavens, on brilliant display for all to see."
- Fran C. Smith, Burkesville, KY
"Jana Kappeler is an exciting artist with an abundance of talent and a wide range of interests--from lyrical, gestural abstractions to contemplative landscapes and waterscapes. Fascinated by color and eager to explore, Jana creates paintings that can evoke emotion, prompt thought, change mood, and reflect sentiment. It has been a privilege to add her works to my collection and an honor to have her creativity grace the walls of my home."
- Avi Brisman, MFA, JD, Ph.D., Lexington, Kentucky
"Take a look at any of Jana's art and it's impossible not to be immediately mesmerized. Whether waterscape, landscape or abstract, Jana's work draws me into its depths to fully experience the emotions her colours evoke. Jana uses bold, vibrant colours and they draw my attention to a never-ending interplay between time, energy, emotions and space...and everything in between. Contemplating her art is like rest and rejuvenation for mind, body, heart and soul."
- Nicky Jameson, Photo Artist, Toronto, Canada
"I recently acquired a painting from artist Jana Kappeler. While it might be termed "abstract", there is also a realistic dimension to it. I am impressed how she created a work of art that is what might be called ethereal, but at the same time employs definite or realistic elements. I recommend a thorough review of her artwork--especially for the person who is drawn to her type of art that I have just described."
- Christopher Kelder, Author and Filmmaker, Atlanta, Georgia
"Mysterious and able to move between earth, water and air. I had an intuitive reaction to beautiful while watching some of your work."
- Seka Preston, Lexington, Kentucky
"Your musings in your newsletters are refreshing and inspirational. There's always something interesting--like the point about colors actually being more vibrant when the sun isn't shining. We always marvel at the flowers at dusk in the summer. Your thoughtfulness and caring shine through the messages and are perfect reminders to find joy in things small and large."
