Born June 3, 1952 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Jan Brown Checco creates images in two and three dimensional mediums which speak of her experience as a woman/wife/mother in the context of all women's stories throughout all time.
Some works are personal vignettes related to her own lifetime and family experiences; others are iconic, uniting with the creative voices of all cultures. Her work seeks to identify the forces which drive our conscious and unconscious choices and passions, and to distinguish the outer veneers of personal appearance from the nature of the inner psyche. "Peeling back a lifetime's worth of juxtaposed incongruities is fascinating, like the deciphering of a dream. I choose materials that act as signifiers for ideas discovered. Particularities conjoin and the resulting expression hangs together, albeit sometimes like a question mark in the air."

Jan is active in the Cincinnati arts community through exhibitions, advocacy and special arts project management. Her artwork is held in many private and public collections throughout the world. Current projects include curatorial work for international exhibitions and expansion of the artists exchange program for the Sister Cities Association of Cincinnati in conjunction with the School of Art at the University of Cincinnati.
