Commission a Painting for Your Living Space


You won’t believe how your space can come alive with original paintings and prints. Sometimes it helps to see a piece on the wall. Here are a few breathtaking shots of original paintings in specific spaces. Take a look around.

This is a smaller piece of art by Jan Kirstein enlarged into a giclee print on stretched canvas. Maybe you have a special place you would like to bring to life: your bedroom, your living room or dining room. There is nothing like a painting to breath joy and life into a living or office space. If you would like to find out more about painting commissions, if you have any questions about how to get started, feel free to email me, the artist, Jan Kirstein here.

In the Artist’s Studio


My art studio is a place to celebrate, contemplate, examine and perceive. The creative process continues today .

My name is Jan Kirstein and I invite you to look at the Artist’s Journey through my eyes.

My new inspiration for creating in my studio still spins from reading Nancy Hillis’ inspiring book just out called “The Artist’s Journey.”



The journey down stairs leads to the studio where the painting with sumi e ink begins.



I move on to other painting media and collage with Japanese rice paper.
















Thanks for joining my on my journey. I hope you feel an inspiration to create wherever you can find a small space. I used to complain that I didn’t have a studio. Now I call the world my studio!!

Jan Kirstein

Paintings by J. Kirstein

“I have always felt as though I come from some place very far away, and the only way I am able to sustain myself on this planet is through creating through painting and writing.” J. Kirstein

“The big idea is to work with the elegant solution of simplicity and constraint. Within a constraint you have an infinity of possibilities to explore.” Nancy Hillis in “The Artist’s Journey.”

“The Dark Night of the Soul happens over and over for every artist. The transformation of creating your deepest work lives at the edge of your struggle.” Nancy Hillis from “The Artist’s Journey.”
