Born in Sheffield, England and qualified as a librarian, Jane came to Trinidad in 1968 to get married. After working in the university library and having two daughters, Jane started to paint local flowers using acrylics in a watercolour style. After attending local workshops with Ian Ali, Ken Critchlow, Harry Bryden and also in the U.K., she now uses watercolours to depict landscapes and local architecture, where she brings subtle European colours into the Caribbean countryside. Jane also works in pastels and is now exploring oils.
Jane’s work has been on exhibit at annual flower and orchid shows since 1984 and in many exhibitions since then. A professional artist since 1990, her paintings are in many collections world wide, including that of the Royal Family and have been used commercially in projects such as calendars and greeting cards. Today, Jane’s work can be seen in local galleries and is kept busy with commissions.
