Jane attended The Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas and served on the Board of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. After returning to California, she studied Interior Design at California State University, Fresno. Jane worked as a commercial interior designer for many years while maintaining an art studio. “We also had an ad agency. It was very nourishing to my soul to create interiors, paintings and sculpture while being involved in ad campaigns and commercials.” Jane was involved in the Fresno Arts Council and produced a segment of their PBS show, Arts Alley, called, “In Search of Valley Arts”. Always civic minded, she co-created “ArtHop”, a First Thursday citywide studio, gallery and museum tour that continues to flourish. She served as a Board Member for The Fresno Art Museum and was on the Fresno Mayor’s Council for the Arts. Jane also taught art at the Chowchilla Women’s Correctional Facility in Chowchilla, California.
After moving to Georgia, she has shown here work in the Atlanta area. While living in Serenbe, Georgia, Jane opened a wine shop, “me..jane”. It was a gathering place for wine tastings, live music and also a place to show and sell her art.
She now maintains a studio in Senoia, Georgia.
“I draw and paint to music, which brings me to my basic self. Melodies can evoke certain emotions that seem to intuitively find their way onto the canvas. By looking at the line, color and texture, one can almost feel what I felt while painting. This is Abstract Expressionism.
