With a background in Theatre and Textile design, Jane taught Art & Design for many years at numerous F.E and H.E Institutions.
Through her work Jane explores The Magical World of Theatre and Performance to create imagery using combinations of mixed media, drawing and collage.
These qualities are reflected in her striking and unusual pieces which are inspired by the traditions of Theatre and Pantomime.
