Jan Swift, Painting

Jan Swift is a renowned water colorist known for her landscapes, still life, architectural settings and floral works. She says "I just love to paint anything and everything. Watercolor is so exciting especially when "happenings" involving line, color, shape, space and texture occur. I don't like to get locked into any one thing." A resident of Blairstown, Swift graduated from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia with a B.S. in art education. She earned a master degree in education at Temple University and Tyler School of Fine Arts.

Now retired, Swift taught art in N.J. public schools for 25 years after supervising the art programs in 11 elementary schools in Bucks County, PA, before moving to Blairstown. She holds the Governor's Award for excellence in teaching and has published articles in Arts and Activities, a leading art education magazine. Swift is a member of Pocono Arts and has captured 1st Place in watercolor for 3 consecutive years. Her paintings are represented in private and corporate collections. Contact information: 908-362-8001

M. Leana MoonspinnerFiber

M Leana MoonSpinner learned to sew as a young girl in 4-H.  But it wasn’t until 1996 when she retired from a career in programming and information systems at AT&T that she discovered her love of quilting.  Starting with traditional pieced quilts, she has constantly challenged herself to try new things.  Her quilts run the gambit from bed quilts to art quilts and almost everything in between.  The La Femina line incorporates prints of her hand-painted tiles of women into quilted bags, totes, book covers and other items.  Each piece has a unique design and a name.

At Blairstown Gallery 23 you can find a variety of functional and fine art quilts.   Placemats, table toppers, potholders, lap quilts, and baby quilts fill the shelves, La Femina bags hang on the rack, and seasonal and timeless pieces adorn the wall.  Stop in and check out the latest pieces off the MoonSpinner Quilts design wall!
