Doyle

Jan Doyle is a media personality with her own show, Wyse Talk, on cable and YouTube. She has appeared on Good Morning CT for three years with Classroom Connections, taught elementary and high school, and loves to travel.

As a teacher, Jan felt the one page in the history books devoted to the Underground Railroad completely inadequate. Personal interest and study led to the creation of the program Quilts and the Underground Railroad: Fact or Fiction.  “What makes my presentation unique are the historical facts juxtaposed with handmade quilts and the storytelling feature. It’s great fun when I use a bonnet, and transform into ‘Auntie Jan’.”

Another passion is to “incorporate photography with my quilting. I discovered thread painting my images on fabric is something I love to do. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my interest in photography and love of quilting with others.” Her quilts and photographs have been exhibited in galleries and art centers.

Jan presents at conferences, schools, quilt guilds, libraries, art centers, and churches.

Jan is a Co-Rep for the Connecticut Chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates, (SAQA), editor of the SAQA -CT newsletter, and immediate past president of the New Haven Camera Club. You can watch her YouTube videos. Go to the page that links them for you.
