Study of costume design at Emerson College in Boston, began her professional art career as a teacher and designer of costumes for theater. Her husband’s career moved them to Montana in 1954 where her career changed to motherhood, commission artwork in pencil, pen, acrylic and th enchanting world of stoneware clay.

Looking back at Jane’s lifetime, we see a theme of birds and nature; birding with her father as a young girl, flying an airplane at 15, high up in the sky with the birds, sculpting animals, and drawing the birds, butterflies and flowers in this collection.

Jane’s love of nature is shared with feather and furry friends, capturing a nuance, a mood in painting, clay sculpture or relief. Her work is in homes, galleries, businesses and trade throughout the U.S.
