She is currently represented by a gallery in Bernalillo, New Mexico, has exhibited in several galleries in Albuquerque and has had photographs published in several literary journals and websites.

"My love for animals has carried into my love of photography and one of the projects I have set for myself is to photograph people and their pets in spontaneous shots. I find that people usually like having their photograph taken if they can show off their pet at the same time!" - Jan
