Jane embarked on an epic road trip around Australia with her family in 2015. With sketchbook & paints in hand she recorded the journey & this exhibition shares her intuitive response to that adventure with paintings that she feels connects the soul to nature.

Jane describes herself as a painter for people who appreciate the beauty of the natural world. She creates landscapes for people who love creation & who have a need bring natural beauty into the built environment. Her work celebrates the joy, solace & rejuvenation that comes from spending time in nature & these paintings which are so rich in colour entice the viewer to explore our landscape & share her experience.
