Jane’s love of drawing is evident in her work. Firstly she observes and then responds, drawing and layering.

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.

Janes digital work is taken from her painted pieces.

“I make creative judgements on what to manipulate… I hope that the pieces are fun, charming yet intriguing. I endevour to make work that captivates my audience.”
