Jane is a self-taught artist, who is fascinated by the dynamic qualities of the watercolor medium. She paints in a representational style which is achieved by glazing washes of color from light to dark values and diffuse to harder edges. She enjoys portraying how light influences the perception of form and color. The natural environment is a continual source of inspiration. She gravitates toward botanical, wildlife, and still-life subjects, often in a close-up format. These intimate views are intended to invite the viewer to lean in and connect with the sentiment of the painting.
