Jane’s paintings are greatly influenced by her surroundings having lived on the Mornington Peninsula for the past 10 years. Her paintings are subtle and lush with colour that engages the imagination and conveys a weight of emotional connection to atmospheres and places.
Through the skilful use of palette knife and brushwork she scrapes and layers the paintings, to achieve the same understated transcendence in all of her work.
Jane has been involved in numerous group exhibitions including Cook St Collective in Flinders. In 2012 she exhibited at the Royal Exhibition Buildings as part of ART Melbourne. Her paintings are held in numerous private collections throughout Australia. She currently lives and works in Mt Martha, on the Mornington Peninsula.
