Jane was born in Hertfordshire, England. She studied Graphic Design then travelled on and off for 5 years. She worked for a top name advertising agency, and another large creative design company, both in London, before setting up business as a freelance graphic designer in 1982.

Being a graphic designer before computers she thought was great! But then along came the Apple Mac which changed the way we work.
