About

Jan Winsor

     I grew up having a special love for animals and art.  As a child, every summer was spent at my family's camp on Sebago Lake.  I was thrilled when my husband's career brought us and our two children to live in Maine full time.

     I began teaching at an elementary school in 1999.  There I met two coworkers who introduced me to fiber arts.  After exploring this art form, I found it was perfect for me.  It combines art, animals, and teaching in one endeavor!  By 2002 I had my first sheep.

     I currently live on a small farm in Gorham, Maine with my husband, a small flock of sheep, three miniature horses, chickens, guineas, an Australian Shepherd, a cat, and a German Angora rabbit.  With the last name of Winsor and since we are a family of four we named our farm Four Winds Farm.

     I studied education and art in Massachusetts and received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Framingham State College.

     I am now a full time fiber artist.
