    Artist Statement

    The paintings evolve organically; I approach each composition as a conversation between myself and the viewer, using symbolism, both established and personal, and narratives without definitive beginnings or endings.

    I look for humour and the ridiculous to subvert a heroic interaction of character and fate. 



    "The tableaux that Jane produces are not the beginning or end of a story. A great deal has already happened to lead to the situation that is revealed to us, and clearly the struggle for survival will continue after we have departed......Jane has found her own distinctive style. She paints with a sensitivity and creative vigour that immediately captivates her audience. Her compositions positively hum with a spirited personality and, exceptionally amongst her peers, she is able to create paintings that take on a distinct and disturbing life all of their own."
    David Coke
