Using various mediums such as spray paint, ink, oil paint, acrylic paint, steel and blow torches, Jane investigates people and places at specific points in history, in particular the social, economic and psychological aspects that that occur within society, and how the experiences, emotions and memories of those people and the communities they lived link to her own life, and teenage years.
Jane was born in a village on the outskirts of Sheffield and spent her childhood years getting to know the area and the people that lived there. A move to Bedfordshire in her late teens inspired her to study graphic design at Dunstable College. And after working in the design industry for a number of years she went freelance and started to paint and draw alongside her design work.
In 2002 Jane moved to Cornwall and continued to work freelance and spend more time painting and drawing. Jane has been a member of Creftow (an artists collective in Helston) and attended critical art group held in Flushing (near Falmouth) for a number of years.
After doing a BA in art and design practice, Jane was selected for the Krowji Graduate Studio Award, she had a studio space in the Percy Williams Building at Krowji for a year where she worked on a new project. Jane now works in her studio in Falmouth.
