Jane is an artist living and working in Diss, Norfolk. Jane says about her work:
"The major theme of my work is the exploration of a sense of place, rooted in the British tradition of reportage. I am particularly interested to evoke a response to the experience of being there in the environment, rather than to record topography. It is an interpretation of space in flux, always influenced by light, weather, sound, of fixing a fleeting moment or a series of viewpoints, the passing of time, transience as opposed to the concrete. I wish to encapsulate this experience developed through recurring visits to a place, by working in series.
To make this work I use an offset litho press to produce multi-layered monotypes and work on several images from a series at any one time. Whilst formalising ideas to create an initial working structure, the ongoing process is not predetermined and is essentially intuitive. Exploration of colour, gesture and energy within mark-making are intrinsic to the way each work progresses and elements appear or are hidden as layers build. To finish a piece may take many weeks, which allows the whole series of work to remain open to possibility."
Jane graduated from the University of Brighton and worked for many years as an illustrator and artist with design agencies and publishers of international reputation.
Teaching roles have included a Senior Lectureship at University of Northumbria and latterly at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, where Jane continues to teach. She is currently 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) amongst others and was a Jury Member for The Scottish Design Awards 2004.
Jane exhibits in solo and selected group shows nationwide, and her work is included in many private collections in Great Britain, Ireland and USA.
