Born in the North West of England Jane spent most of her adult life working in deprived areas with young children and their families. She found various artistic pursuits a welcome diversion during these years. After achieving a long held ambition of attaining a 1st Class Hons Degree in Fine Art, Jane successfully took the plunge, working as a full time professional artist. Her work has since become highly sought after and she now has work in many private collections in both the UK and abroad.
Janes work has evolved through her personal investigation into the allure of natural form, real and imagined, obvious and ambiguous. Jane is currently working with realistic figure charcoals and portraits, ranging from descriptive to the surreal, creating a duality of readings within her work. In her current pieces she has developed a completely unique and unusual hybrid drawing which relies on the viewers responses to fragility, vulnerability, beauty and of course the capacity to look beyond initial perceptions. These delicate pieces are individually cut and hand coloured by the artist.
Being a multi-disciplinary artist, using both traditional and modern techniques Jane has exhibited to high acclaim a diverse variety of work using varied media, involving drawing, painting, sculpture, print, book art, installation and photography.
