Jorjana Letow

Jorjana Letow was inspired to create artwork from a young age with experiences in girl scouts to working with needlepoint and cross-stitch throughout high school. When it came time to select a degree plan at the University of North Texas, she combined an art minor with elementary teaching. Jorjana has been an employee of Frito-Lay/Pepsico for 20 years.

Jorjana’s creativity inspired her to try her hand at a watercolor class listed in a summer recreation catalog. She quickly grew to love the medium and has pursued training during the 6 years since with influential teachers including Sue Alston and Mary Griffin. Jorjana has been a board member of the Plano Art Association since 2003 and has received numerous awards and honors for her works:

  • President of the Plano Art Association, 2008-2009

  • Juried into Bountiful Harvest gallery show at Studio 2600/Dallas, September thru November 3, 2007

  • First place winner for Artist of the Month at PAA Member's meeting, May 2007

  • 2nd place winner in the PAA 125 Show for 'Go Fish', Spring 2007

  • Gallery showing at VACD (Visual Art Center of Dallas), Spring 2006

  • Works entered into PAA National Juried show in Spring 2005 and Spring 2006

  • Honorable mention for PAA 2004 Member's Spring Art Show

  • First place for work displayed at Frito-Lay's employee art show, 2004

Jorjana strives to capture and express what makes life special and miraculous through her paintings. Drawing upon her keen skill for insightful observation, she succeeds in capturing the uniqueness of everyday objects: Longhorn steers sunning, tractors being overburdened by crows, Japanese gardens, and wonderful butterflies to name a few.
