Jane enjoys illustrating complex emotional issues, women’s issues, relationships and food in a stylized, simplistic, elegant manner with great attention to composition, color and line quality.
“My absolute love for drawing and day-dreaming when I was a little girl brought me to the place of illustration. I love to turn a complex idea or concept into an eye pleasing, thought provoking visual treat. originally from Minnesota, I studied in Italy, lived in London, and travelled extensively throughout Europe and currently live in Naples, Florida. I love history and story telling, and understand that the most amazing artists, were actually illustrators.”
“I draw inspiration from Chagall, Gauguin, Klee, Matisse, and Picasso. If I could, I would turn back time and live in Paris in the 1920’s. Although I’m sure it was challenging, just the sheer energy that was going on at that time is mind numbing.”
