About The Artist

Artist Statement

I consider myself a visual storyteller, calling on my imagination to make sense of the world through color and composition. My abstract work is based on random memories, feelings of joy, and often deep-seated longings.  The atmospheric nature of my work can be read as an Asian sensibility that reflects the delicacy of light and line to create a balance often found in nature. These are deep cultural roots that surface unconsciously. On the other hand growing up and living in large cities of Boston, Honolulu, Paris New York City, and San Francisco brings out the hard edges and structures of urban landscapes that are often found in my work. The process of combining color, composition, and mark-making is exhilarating and deeply satisfying.

The mediums I work with are acrylic, oil, oil with cold wax medium and graphite. Recently I have added collage to my bag of tricks. Experimentation with these mediums forms my visual language.


Born in Boston Massachusetts, Jane started painting in the 1980’s while she was a fashion design student in New York City. While on an extended trip in the South of France she purchased her first set of oil paints and brushes. During her stay she created numerous abstract canvases and was invited to show her works in a local church. This was the start of her love of painting.  After returning to the States she had shows in independent New York City and Washington DC galleries before moving to California to work in shoe design.

In California she began etching and fine art quilting as a means of expression, and to get back to “thinking like an artist”. During this time she raised a family. Her interest in oil painting resurfaced.  Drawn to the beauty and luminosity of classical oil paintings found in museums, she pursued local classes in the old master’s style of painting. After completing and exhibiting a series of still life paintings she was ready for the next challenge of working on abstract subject matter.

Abstract painting has been the narrative of her artistic vision since 2005. Currently she works in acrylic, acrylic mixed medium, oil, and oil with cold wax.  She feels very comfortable, as well as challenged, with the process of discovering a painting through the journey of creating art. Jane continues to take classes and workshops to discover techniques that feed her curiosity. She exhibits her abstract paintings in local and international juried art shows. She has received numerous awards. Her art resides in collections locally and throughout the country.  When she is not painting or entering shows Jane is designing shoes for Impo International or working as a costumer in the East Bay theater community. She resides in Walnut Creek, CA.
