Jann Arden - singer and painter
The You Tube blurb beneath this video accredits Jann with painting the above picture in the Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall Nov 30th 2009. The painting was auctioned off with proceeds going to World Vision.
Jann is better known as a popular singer, and more lately as a CBC personality where she has a forthcoming summer show on CBC radio. Jan's best known song, may be 'Insenstive'.
Click here to be taken to Jann's webpage, where you will see a single picture of Jan engaging in what appears to be the above painting - only this time she is identified as painting it in Vancouver.
Nonetheless, its certainly appreciated when artists put themselves in the foreground in helping those in need.
