Artist Statement
Jane currently works primarily in oil. She makes the ordinary enticing.  Jane’s landscape work stems from her fascination with Canada’s proximity to vast wild areas.  Having grown up in China where wilderness was difficult to access, painting Ontario’s landscape is a way to pay homage to her new home.
