Jane was born in Toronto, Canada and studied art in Ryerson University. She started working as a graphic designer in Toronto, and painted watercolors in her spare time. Jane also worked with Inner City Angels, where she worked with the children painting murals in public schools.

Later she moved to Australia, where she continued working as a graphic artist. At the end of that project she painted full time with acrylics.

Jane has been painting for 20 years, using very different styles, while living in Canada, Australia, USA and Mexico. Recently she suffered a stroke, and lost partial use of one arm, and has developed a looser, more abstract style.

Jane now lives in San Miguel de Allende in the central highlands of Mexico with her husband Peter, and ‘Jules’, her teacup Morkie.
