Jane's early years were spent playing on and around the shore of Cape Cod. She feels especially drawn to the subjects of sand, sky and marshes. She believes, "What we experience as children seems so full of wonder that it is completely absorbed, and becomes a part of our beings, forever."
She enjoys painting the European countryside, with its architecture and vast array of textures. The first time she saw France, she was hooked.
Jane's formal training was at the Massachusetts College of Art, in Boston, and the Art Studentís League, in New York. She says, "They taught me how to use a brush and certain rules of composition, but after that, I became an Impressionist. I paint from the heart. I must feel it, smell it and taste it. Only then, am I able to express it, on canvas. And, for me, expression is true art."
Jane is a hard-working artist, however, she says, "Painting is not work, for me. It is my magnificent obsession, and I feel so blessed."
