"Whether it is capturing an idyllic street scene, the way sunlight kisses my cat, or an amusing peek into some aspect of our human nature, I love to communicate what is in my heart with my paintbrush."

Jane Leland Langdon was a resident of Colorado for almost 4 decades where she chronicled idyllic scenes of rural Boulder County in a warm whimsical style which was well recognized by local residents. She has created several limited edition prints. Her watercolor of Historic Niwot, Colorado, "A Small Town Is Like A Big Family" sold hundreds of prints and became a best seller. Her print, "The Auctioneer," sold to auctioneers all over the country. Jane has done commercial illustration for both banks and professional offices. Her watercolors hang in public and municipal offices throughout Boulder County. She has designed logos for events both large and small, created website art, and completed numerous private commissions. In 2003 Jane was selected as the first licensed illustrator for the Red Hat Society, which at the time, was a fast growing national woman's movement of more than 50,000 chapters.
In the Summer of 2007 Jane and her husband, Brad, moved to Pendleton, Indiana. She recently created a print of Historic Downtown Pendleton.
Jane was born in Dayton, Ohio. It was her mother, Harriet Leland, a portrait painter, who inspired Jane's lifelong love of art. Jane subsequently earned her degree in Fine Arts and has studied with several well respected artists in both Colorado and Indiana.
