Jane studied illustration and printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee before following a career in Graphic Design at the BBC in London. In between she designed textiles and ceramics in Portugal and illustrated magazines in her native Scotland.
She has now come full circle and returned to her first love, printmaking, producing linocuts using the reduction linocut technique.
These linocuts are made using a single block. Through each stage of cutting, inking and printing the image is revealed as the actual block is destroyed. A reduction print can therefore never be reprinted.
Her prints reveal a fascination with still life and her colour palette and graphic sensibility reflect her love of 20th century artists and craftsmen, 50s textile design and Scandinavian ceramics. Ordinary things, flea market finds, souvenirs, cherries, jugs, teacups, flowers combine to evoke a feeling, a memory or a sense of place.
Jane is a member of the Oxford Printmakers and the Gloucester Printmaking Cooperative.
