Painting professionally since 1989, Jane has enjoyed sell out exhibitions in New Zealand and the UK. Jane's work has extended onto a range of substrates, including working as a resident artist for a Massachusetts restaurant chain and producing paintings for walls and tableware, through to creating paintings for reproduction onto wine labels and publications.
Residing in the Hawkes’ Bay is ideal for Jane's subject matter with the quality of light and life reflected in the vibrancy of her work. Taking a great interest in people and their social behaviour, Jane’s work is often based around social activities, such as concerts, ballet and wine tours. The characters she portrays are captured with brisk brushstrokes and vivid colour.
