Jane is a London based glass artist. She comes from a fine art background having originally completed a BA Hons in Fine Art at St Martins School of Art. She went on to return to Central St Martins to Study Architectural Glass graduating in 2009. Jane is an award winning glass artist, gaining first prize in the Stevens Competition run by The Worshipful Company Of Glaziers and Painters of Glass. She has exhibited widely in the UK, most recently being chosen for The British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP) Centenary Touring exhibition.
Jane likes to combine several glass disciplines in her practice, mixing kiln formed glass with painted pattern and fused glass elements within leaded or copper foiled panels. Her work is mainly figurative and includes abstracted elements that allow her to explore pattern, surface and decoration. Her work is detailed and intimate and has a sense of ‘otherworldliness’.
Jane gained a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education at UCL Institute of Education. She has in-depth knowledge of art and design with over 30 years experience of being a creative practitioner, including printmaking, drawing, painting, textiles, illustration and glasswork. She works as a part-time glass tutor at Adult Learning Lewisham while maintaining her own practice. She loves the interaction with and between students and gains inspiration from teaching.
