Growing up with artist parents, Jane was encouraged to draw and paint at an early age. Following in her parents’ footsteps, she pursued a career in graphics and worked in various advertising design studios in Toronto. While experiencing an interesting mix of corporate, retail package and industrial design, she preferred illustration. Courses at the Ontario College of Art enriched her illustration, life drawing and painting ability.

Marriage and three beautiful daughters changed her focus. She continued with illustration as opportunities arose. Jane became drawn more and more to fine arts. She worked with various instructors, which enhanced her skill and encouraged her to explore other forms of paint media. Opportunities to teach now allow Jane to share her experiences with others.

When her husband retired, they moved to Georgian Bay. The beauty of the Bay, and its many lakes, rivers and forests, are a constant inspiration. Jane’s desire is to simplify the subject at hand: its light, shadow, shape and texture. Getting to the very essence of what first inspired her, whether working with the human form or a landscape, is what brings life to her work.
