A lifelong fascination with shapes, especially with those made by shadows, is apparent in most of Jan McLaughlin's oil paintings. Sparkling sunlight and the resulting shadow patterns are a recurring theme in much of her work.

Jan studied design at UC Davis (plus a summer of studying art history in Guadalajara, Mexico) before transferring to receive her degree in sociology from Arizona State University. After graduation, she spent thirteen years as a probation officer and youth supervisor at the Juvenile Court Center in Phoenix. During that time, she pursued her artwork by studying privately with a number of instructors, including Mary DeLoyht-Arendt and William Schimmel, Jr.
