Jane Elizabeth begins each piece of art with a focus solely on the animal’s intention, but no specific plan, painting loosely and intuitively until a colour scheme emerges to reflect their character. From there she paints with a precarious balance of control and intuition to try and capture the creature’s energy and free spirit
Jane Elizabeth, a self-taught artist, has always had a creative streak, drawing and painting from an early age. With a degree in languages, she became a teacher and later, a teacher trainer, indulging her creativity professionally through the design of engaging and highly interactive lessons. At home, Jane has expressed her creativity through interior and garden design.
The artist always had a love of colour and texture and happily spend long hours devising interior design schemes for myself, friends and family. Jane Elizabeth decided to paint professionally when a friend told her I was already creating living paintings in my home and garden! Jane Elizabeth also loves animals and am terrified by the increase in poaching, the loss of their natural habitats and the ever present threat of extinction. She thinks it was a natural progression for me to combine these interests and paint with purpose.
