About

Currently living and working in Brisbane, Australia, Jane received her degree in Fine Art from the University of Tasmania.

With a lifelong involvement with the sea and marine conservation, she is an exhibiting member of the Australian Society of Marine Artists, and travels teaching Marine Art.

With work held in private collections internationally, Jane has won many awards for her work both in Australia and overseas.

"The natural environment and marine conservation are central to my work which is representational in media including drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking. I travel to marine environments in the Asia Pacific region to collect material for my art projects and to conduct teaching residencies in Marine Art.
My current project is to create two site specific marine installations underwater in Tasmania, and produce a body of painted work for exhibition in 2016 entitled ‘Tidewrack.’"

Influences

My influences are varied, from the techniques of Andrew Wyeth and Hans Heysen to contemporary artists such as Kurt Jackson. I enjoy extending the sculptural and plastic qualities of modern synthetic polymer, and use many different techniques in the production of my pieces, from conventional traditional applications to pouring and casting.
