Jane is a painter and printmaker whose origins are in the East Anglian fens, now living and working in rural South Norfolk. Her work is characterised by a strong sense of place, by exploration of colour, texture, and space.
She says, "I am frequently drawn to coastal terrain and transient shifting vistas; open spaces anchored by the horizon where I can explore the connections between land, sea, and sky. I have long been inspired by the marshes, creeks and beaches of North Norfolk. My working process is a contemplative one, resulting in paintings which I hope can be lingered within, and which engage on both an abstract and figurative level. I see these completed works as reminiscent of place and time."
Jane's unique working processes utilise a 1940's offset litho press which enables her to build many layers of painted and mono printed marks over many weeks in series until the image resolves and a textual richness develops.
Jane graduated from the University of Brighton and worked for many years as an illustrator and artist with design agencies and international publishers.
She has held Senior Lectureships at the University of Northumbria and Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, and has been an External Examiner at Middlesex University and UCA Maidstone.
Jane has been a guest speaker at Bath, Wolverhampton, and Brighton Universities and Savannah College of Art and Design (USA), and Jury Member for The Scottish Design Awards 2004 and Judge at the Jersey Open Art Competition in 2008.
Jane has exhibited in solo and selected group shows nationwide, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Society of British Artists, National Open Art, and Originals National Print exhibition.
Her work is included in the Public Art Foundation and NHS, and in many corporate and private collections in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.
