An elegant design sensibility, keen eye for colour and self taught bravado enables Jane to draw on the inherent qualities of component objects and materials she collects to create unique wearable pieces. An element of reuse, and a love of a vintage aesthetic underpins her practice.
Jane's unique one-off designs led to stocking Akira Isogawa, Zambesi and Vixen, alongside a strong following in the gallery retail sector, including representation at Object, Artisan, FORM and Craft Victoria. She also exhibited regularly with shows at Metalab, Object, Glass Artist Gallery and Artisan to name a few. Refer to exhibition history below, and archive & press for more detail.
After a break to attend to 'family business' she is back in her studio with a new range, and can't wait to adorn you.....
