Growing up in a small Texas town, and great granddaughter of the County doctor, Jane had a curiosity about the human condition and the influence of different cultures. Expressing herself through art was inevitable when her grandmother, a local artists, put a brush in Jane's hand when she was 18 months old. As a joke, her grandmother entered the child's picture in the County art show and won 3rd place among established artists.
Traveling over the States, Hawaii, Mexico, and all of Western Europe, and intermingling with different cultures, from Native American tribes, Spanish fishermen, German farmers, Italian merchants, French artists to foreign diplomats created images and ideas needing to be expressed.
Her tools are acrylic, oil, multimedia, colored pencil, and myopia. 'Being near-sighted is a wonderful gift for a painter. I can see line, shape, color, values and design without being distracted by the details. Contact lenses are handy, but the world is so pretty when you squint!'
