work of acclaimed national, regional and local artists.
“Palmetto Garden,” aka “Garden of the Palms,” was featured in the October 2006

In 2009 she received “Honorable Mention,” and “2nd Place” in Mt. Pleasant, SC;
and 1st place in an exhibit featuring South Carolina scenes in a juried show in
Litchfield, SC .
Jane discovered her love for painting as a child and she has continued to expand
her knowledge of both oils and acrylics, by studying under various instructors.
“I paint entirely in oils at present, ‘sculpting’ more now on canvas with cold
wax and palette knife. When I finish a piece, although it may take quite some
time, it is as if I hardly remember painting it. It seems to just flow from the
end of the brush or knife. Painting is such fun! I love to teach as well, to
watch students ‘begin to see’ as never before, to open their eyes to the colors
around them, to view the world in ‘living color’ - as if for the first time.
Painting is my passion, one I love to share.”
