Jane has worked in various artistic media for most of her life, but only
in recent years did she discover a passion for mosaics. Trained in technique
by highly regarded mosaic artist Elizabeth de Ath , Jane has also visited
many of the meccas of the mosaic world for inspiration, including Ravenna,
Venice, Chartres and Barcelona. In a relatively short space of time she has
produced an impressive portfolio, and has already completed several commissions.
Jane specialises in micro-mosaics, a style which involves clipping the tiles
into small – sometimes tiny – shaped pieces, quite different from the “roman
villa” style of mosaics familiar to most of us. The technique is necessarily
difficult and time-consuming, but the artistic results speak for themselves.
Take a look at some of the image details in the gallery and you’ll see what I
mean.During the last year, Jane has been experimenting with various substrates
and materials, and with different application techniques. Consequently she has
produced – and is able to create to order – many types of mosaic for many
applications including indoor and outdoor, panels and sculptures, free-standing
versus built-in, tiny and large, and so on. She’s happy to research and experiment
with novel ideas, so if you have a concept you’d like to make into reality, just
use the Contact page to start a conversation it with her.
Jane lives in Hertfordshire with her husband (and installation engineer) David,
Jake the dog, Sybil the parrot, and several small fish and chickens when available.
