Jane studied textile design at Manchester Polytechnic and graduated in 1987 with a degree in Printed Textiles. Since graduating she has taught as a full time lecturer [Scottish College of Textiles/ Heriot Watt University 15 years] and part-time university lecturer [Nottingham Trent, De Montfort, Staffordshire, Huddersfield, Cleveland, Northampton, York St John] and as a freelance textile designer selling work through textile and giftware agents.
Jane’s main focus now is painting and exhibiting in galleries throughout the UK as well as licensing artwork.
Jane has recently relocated from the East Midlands and now she lives by the sea. She paints mosts days either outside on location or in her studio in Fife, Scotland working from sketchbooks, photographs and memory; using a range of media on gesso wooden panels, canvas and paper.
She really enjoys sketching on location and she travels widely throughout the UK and beyond. Jane has a fascination with remote islands and she is particularly drawn to the Scottish Outer Hebrides, a special place she discovered in the 1990s and she returns to as often as she can.
The paintings are informed by her personal experience of walking in the landscape. Sketchbook drawings and photographs play a useful part in developing new work. She explores the physical quality of paint allowing the gestural brush marks to suggest the light, weather and feeling of the places she has experienced.
The sense of being out in big open places lie at the heart of what Jane is expressing in paint.
Jane’s paintings have been licensed worldwide.
She has designed giftware for many clients including The National Trust, Museums and Galleries, Woodmansterne Publications, Paperchase, Tracks Publishing, Paperlink, The Art Group, Phoenix Trading, Pigment Productions, Clare Maddicott Publications, Abacus, Wildcard Company, Tartan 2CV, Cancer Research, The Robertson Collection and Trader Joe's.
