Jane is a painter who, at her website, introduces her work by saying “I am drawn to the landscape through the changing seasons . . . All of my work is an expression of nature as I have experienced it . . .” Jane describes the Pioneer Valley in New England as a place that inspired her with natural beauty and nourished her intellectually and creatively. She finds great joy in the creative process and in teaching and, in addition to being a visual artist, she has worked professionally as a choral director and administrator of nonprofit arts organizations.
