Transcript Janny Wurts Dragon's Run b. December 10, 1953—Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania BA: in Creative Writing fa- Illustration, Hampshire College Moore College of Art Interested in space and the fantastic since childhood, Janny Wurts studied astronomy and art while attending college. Since graduation in 1975 she has had fantasy and science fiction art published by Doubleday & Company, Ace Books, Dell Books, Pinnacle Books and in a variety of magazines, including Star ship, Fantastic, and The Dragon. Four of her fantasy paintings have recently been released as note cards from Renaissance Card Company. Wurtz's studio is located in Frazer, Pennsylvania on the farm of author and naturalist Daniel P. Mannix. Her illustrations appeared in Mannix's novel The Wolves of Paris, and she often sketches his collection of animals. Though her primary artistic interest is illustrating fiction, not all of her work is done for publishers. Fantasy and astronomical paintings completed between commercial jobs have been featured in shows at Earthlight Gallery in Boston and the Brooklyn Collector in New York, as well as the World Science Fiction and World Fantasy Conventions in 1979 and 1980. In July, 1981, she had a one-person show at the Provident National Bank in Frazer. In keeping with her long range goal as writer/illustrator, she has a short story appearing in the Elsewhere anthology from Ace, and is currently finishing a novel for the same publishing company, titled Timesplicers of Pendaire. Leisure activities such as sailing, horseback riding, and astronomy later became fuel for her imagination, sources for paintings. Travel overseas has also provided a reservoir of historical and cultural background for the fantasy characters and landscapes in her artwork. 44 Janny Wurts • 76 Beacon Hill Rd. • Frazer PA 19355
