Jane’s love of drawing is evident in her work. Firstly she observes and then responds, drawing and layering with paint, pencil, charcoal or pen.

She uses her own personal language to describe her subject. Janes most recent work is of intimate portraits, monoprints, where she enjoys the immediacy and the accidental.
