Jane’s Creative Practice

“The object” and its place in our private and public worlds is a reoccurring theme in Jane’s
own work. This, she says comes from her love of and obsession with things! Jane explores the connections between objects through playful sculptures that often involve found objects, large-scale paintings, and her favourite pieces; small watercolours that she calls drawings. Jane also has a strong background in printmaking and artist bookmaking.

Jane’s work has been exhibited in the UK, the USA & Spain. Highlights include: Afterword: Contemporary Responsesto S. J. Peploe The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (March 2013), and Nuevos Propuestos Art Rooms, Madrid Spain (Jan 2015)
