Jane has studios on the Assiniboine River (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and also on Lake Winnipeg. Her art is large and small, and as eclectic as the media she uses.....oil & cold wax, acrylics, resists & collage done on paper, canvas, or wood panels.
Archetypal images and abstraction intrigue her as pathways to deeper understandings.
For the past few years she has been exploring life stages, using the metaphor of houses to describe people. Both buildings and people have an outer view, and an inner story that may be entirely different.
In 2016-17 she is painting a daily (well, most days but not every, to be honest!) diary of what she sees, hears and feels by the water/land near her studio. The powerful water, calm and turbulent, freezing and melting, is a great teacher about the seasons of life, death and renewal. Animals, insects, birds and plants have things to say, alive on the earth as we are, but in their own world, mysterious and intriguing.
Rover and Other Random Thoughts is the title of the current body of work she is preparing for a show in 2018.
Jane completed her BScHEc, and then majored in art in her 1978 BEd degree. Her paintings are in private collections, businesses and government offices in Canada and Europe.
