Art Quilter, Photographer
Jan Doyle is a media personality with her own show, Wyse Talk, on cable and YouTube. Jan has appeared on Good Morning CT for three years with Classroom Connections, taught elementary and high school, and loves to travel. As a teacher, Jan felt the one page in the history books devoted to the Underground Railroad completely inadequate. Personal interest and study led to the creation of the program Quilts and the Underground Railroad: Fact or Fiction. “What makes my presentation unique is the historical facts juxtaposed with folklore and legend. This presentation is enhanced with my handmade quilts, an historical quilt and current information on the Underground Railroad.” Another passion is to “incorporate photography with my quilting. I discovered thread painting my images on fabric is something I love to do. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my interest in photography and love of quilting with others.” Her quilts and photographs have been exhibited in galleries and art centers. Jan presents at conferences, schools, quilt guilds, libraries, art centers, and churches. Jan taught at the Houston International Quilt show. Jan is a past Co-Rep for the Connecticut Chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates, (SAQA), past editor of the SAQA -CT newsletter, and immediate past president of the New Haven Camera Club.
