A designer, artist and chef, Jan draws from nature, history, architecture and everything in between. Whether it was experimenting with Chinese inks and pastels, or watching and baking in the kitchen, there has been a drive to create since childhood. After graduating from Parsons School of Design, she worked full-time as an interior designer, refining and enriching her knowledge in the decorative arts. In her spare time, Jan would either be at a farmer’s market, an exhibition, at home in the kitchen or getting lost somewhere admiring the many quirks of the city. After a decade in New York, she enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu to hone her skills in patisserie, thus catapulting her journey further into an ever-vacillating medium between food and design. The products are the culmination of years of discovery, and will continue to evolve with each collection.
