Born in Canada in 1959, Jane grew up in Brantford, Ontario. To pursue her love of all things art, Jane attended Queens University, OCAD University, Sheridan College and New York University where she completed various degrees in art and film. In 1998 Jane left Canada behind and moved to the Bahamas, where spending time in the islands with her family fueled her passion and focus for creating contemporary art.
Jane is best known for her series: Gatherings. A reflection of human connection, the Gatherings paintings represent an embodiment of three decades of work. The sculpture-like, three dimensional figures appear to dance in a synergistic halo of light, depth, color and action, literally, and figuratively jumping off the canvas. While each work conveys a unique emotional experience, they all share a feeling of joy and wonderment. For Jane, "Everything that matters happens when people come together. Life is a series of Gatherings, that all add up to a life well lived."
Jane's art is internationally renowned and collected. Apart from winning the coveted Art Expo NYC Solo Artist Award, her work has been shown in numerous international solo art exhibitions, is currently being prominently displayed in luxury hotels around the world, and can be found in the collections of Fortune 500 Corporations, royal families, and celebrities alike. Jane's capacity to create new and exciting works that emotionally and soulfully touch the audience is unmatched. Throughout her 35-year career, she has not forgotten the themes that brought it all together: Love, Life, Laughter, and Family.
