Jan Vondra has been a longtime resident of Wrightwood.  She grew up surrounded by music and art as her dad was a pianist/music teacher and  her mother an artist/English teacher.  Her grandmother, also an artist, lived in  Montana and had a passion for replicating scenes of the wild Northwest. 

Since retiring from the local school district, Jan has had an opportunity to be a student of the arts, an activity she enjoys and continues to develop.
