I am interested in our perception of the animal kingdom, told through fairytale and fable, art, books and film, rather than realistic depiction. A big influence on my work has been Angela Carter who wrote several short stories and novels on the theme of fairytales, “The Company of Wolves” and “The Bloody Chamber” being among the most famous. She tells tales of transformation, wonder and strangeness but, however dark the stories are, there is, more often than not, a redemptive ending. I use children’s stories as the vehicle to explore, in terms of adult-oriented concerns, the universal themes raised; love and jealousy, duplicity and trust. My work is solidly rooted in the figurative tradition. Of all the artists of the past I particularly admire the work of Elie Nadelman. A Polish-born sculptor working in the earlier part of the last century, he was innovative in his wonderful sense of fluid line and form, influenced by American folk art.
British Wildlife portrayed in the raw using ink and a secret ingredient, along side oil studies of birds and animals of Britain in quirky, obscure tableaux. Originally from Staffordshire, Jane trained for eight years as an illustrator. Now living in the marshes of Sandwich, she takes the wildlife surrounding the studio as models. An exhibitor with the Sunday Times watercolour competition, Jane has also exhibited with The Royal Society of British Artists as well as many galleries throughout the country and worldwide.
