Jane is a committed Blue Mountains maker who exhibits and sells her jewellery and silver work locally and regionally. Her work is displayed at Lyttleton Stores, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre and at the Wollemi Artisan Markets held there too. Jane also participates in the twice yearly Blue Mountains Arts Trail from her workshop in Hazelbrook.
She is an experienced educator and community artist who specialises in working with young offenders. Jane is currently teaching jewellery classes for adults at the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Centre and a series of Saturday workshops at Springwood Community Arts Centre .
Jane is also qualified to practice as an art therapist.
Her art practice is an ongoing exploration of a sense of place and identity. Collections of work have been inspired by the south coast of England; brutalist modern architecture of British ‘new towns’; distant destinations such as Nepal and most recently the flora of the Blue Mountains. Jane believes that to understand herself she needs to reflect on what has shaped her by examining her environment and that of others.
Please contact Jane regarding workshops, exhibiting her work or for individual or group art therapy sessions.
