Jane worked for eleven years as an accountant before changing careers to pursue her passion for painting. She began painting as a muralist working on both commercial and residential projects. In 2010, she met master artist Lap Ngo, from the prestigious French art school, École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. For the next five years, Jane studied and painted under his guidance both in the south of France and in north Texas. During this time, she learned the classical art of painting using both oil and egg tempera and the critical component of all art—preparation of both canvas and boards.
Jane is accomplished in a wide spectrum of styles and subject matter. She is inspired by the natural beauty of her surroundings, whether traveling or at her homes in Naples, Florida and Plano, Texas. She uses Belgian linen for her canvases and prepares her own gesso for both canvas and boards using natural products imported from France. Having the proper structure helps give her paintings added richness, beauty and longevity. She choses the technique and materials for each painting based on the subject matter to illuminate the unique beauty in every painting.
