Jan Daniels was born in the late 1950s in England, but has called Australia home for over five decades. Jan has a deep love for the natural beauty of the country, especially of her spiritual homeland and muse, Anglesea. Raising her three children in the Surf Coast township as a sole parent gave her a solid foundation to rebuild her life and find the peace and stability she so craved. Jan is fascinated by people, conversations, the human spirit, the seasons of life, artistic talent and reality TV. Her greatest joy comes from beauty and colour, family and belonging, the lure of clifftops and an angry sea, the will to win and her beloved Hawthorn Football Club - the longest relationship and love affair of her life. Jan has long worked in community organisations and is currently business manager of several social enterprises.
