Jane’s paintings express a strong sense of physical energy, using colour, light and surface to describe the natural world – her feelings of being a part of it rather than a literal representation. She aims to offer something beautiful in her paintings as an antidote to our unstable world.
“The pleasure of pretty art draws on dissatisfaction: if we did not find life difficult, beauty would not have the appeal it does”. (Art is Therapy, Alain de Botton and John Armstrong. Phaidon Press Ltd, London, 2017, pp19.).
