BiographyJane started painting as a teenager. Primarily self-taught, she started with oil on canvas and was greatly motivated when she won first prize in a local juried exhibition. After working with oils for many years she has expanded her media to acrylics, pastels, pen and ink and mixed media. Canadian landscapes and Abstracts make up the majority of her portfolio. She has attended various workshops over the years and has studied part time at the Toronto School of Art .
As well as having multiple solo shows in Toronto, she has participated in numerous juried shows and has been awarded the “best in show award”. She has had her work displayed in a variety of galleries and Municipal buildings in Toronto and other cities.
My artwork is comprised of a mixture of styles, subjects and media. Landscapes and Abstracts comprise most of my work. I find it fun painting and I get a great deal of enjoyment from it. I hope my paintings in all their various styles will captivate and entertain the viewer.
The abstracts are a new addition to my portfolio. I enjoy the looseness and spontaneity of abstract. To quote an unknown source......
'I believe you can never really learn how to abstract paint. It is just something you do. In other words there is no destination - no finish line - you will always be learning and discovering as you go."
'You don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going.'
