Jan Crawford: Re-labelling an Okanagan Identity
(Magazine cover and art review)
Mia Johnson, June 2002
For generations, life in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia has revolved around miles of orchards and the fruit production industry. The recurring themes in B.C. printmaker Jan Crawford’s work are from this source: vivid depictions of fruit, views of the Okanagan landscape, and scenes of orchard-related objects. Since 1986, Crawford has used monotype techniques to produce her gorgeous prints at the Malaspina Printmakers Society on Granville Island.
