May Artist: Jan Rajeck

Jan is a Glen Ellyn resident who has lived here since 1948! Her art quilt collection, titled Pastiche, represents a variety of techniques she has explored over the last few years.

Jan’s professional background is in education. “I have taught at every level from preschool through graduate school as well as serving on a local board of education. My artistic background comes mainly from a fortunate symbiotic relationship with a number of creative friends,” she said.

When asked about her inspiration, Jan answered, “I was inspired by several friends who are traditional quilters who introduced me to the world of fabric. I think I reached the current point of my career quite accidentally. I have been extremely fortunate to have had the influence and encouragement of mentors and friends.”

A meet-and-greet reception with Jan Rajeck will be held on Sunday, May 19 from 2-3:30 pm.
