Jan has enjoyed an extremely varied career designing across film, television/digital, advertising and theatre. 


She has meticulously researched and realised costumes for many period productions for both the stage and screen.

Jan received an AFI Award for Costume Design for Silver City, a feature film set in the milieu of post-war migration. 

Her work on My Fair Lady was recognised by a Green Room Award for Excellence in Design for Music Theatre.

She was nominated for an AACTA Award for her costumes on telemovie Mary: The Making of a Princess.


Contemporary dramas Jan has designed have been diverse in style, scope and genre.

Ranging from the vibrant, alternative inhabitants that populate the Northern Rivers setting of East of Everything, to the depiction of the gritty, inner-city community of Redfern Now and the competitive world of a prestigious ballet school on Dance Academy.

Recent projects have included web series Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am (sketch comedy) and Patrica Moore (horror).

She has just completed soon to be released children's feature film Back of the Net.


In tandem with costume designing for long form projects, she has also styled many TVCs and stills.

Early in her career Jan costumed Naomi Watts for the iconic Lamb Roast spot shot by Iian MacKenzie. Happy to supply both wardrobe and set dressing on TVCs, her many years of experience have given her an extensive network of suppliers. 

Most recently she worked with Dan Mitchell on the Australian Border Force campaign.
