Jane has studios on the Assiniboine River (Winnipeg, MB) and also on Lake Winnipeg (Victoria Beach, MB). 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.
Jane loves to take the images she sees and abstract them, slightly or completely, trying to capture the essence of the subject and the way it makes her feel.
Painting near the lake and the river connects Jane to the changing seasons. The powerful water, calm and turbulent, freezing and melting, is a great teacher about birth, life, death and renewal. Animals, insects, birds and trees have things to say, alive on this earth as we are, but in their own world, mysterious and intriguing.
Flip Flop Studios at Victoria Beach, where Jane and her partner both paint, is part of the Boreal Shores Art Tour again this summer, August 19 and 20, 2023. This is a free, self guided driving tour featuring individual artist studios and group locations throughout Eastern Manitoba. www. BorealShoresArtTour.ca Jane is also part of the Summer Breeze Art Show, Victoria Beach Clubhouse, August 5 and 6, 2023.
Jane completed her BScHEc, then majored in art in her BEd degree. Many art courses followed. Her paintings are in private collections, businesses and government offices in Canada and Europe

I'm glad you are here, visiting my page. There is a drop down menu to view the art.
I paint, most days, in my studios in the forest near the lake or the city by the river. I love the relationships I see among all living things. Whether animals. trees, people, insects or surging water, all life is interdependent. The quietness in my studio, the making of my art, helps me express the sacred mystery, joy and whimsy I see daily in the ordinary moments of life.
