Jane de France
Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Jane has always had a love for the arts. Widely travelled and inspired by her mother and grandfather, she began painting at an early age and became an established artist of natural talent.
At the beginning of her career she was accepted into various art societies of notable repute. From there she exhibited nationally and internationally with professional galleries. De France's technical skill is reminiscent of the masters, using rich vibrant and translucent colour, painted in a series of glazes, which contribute to depth and luminosity.
Jane’s work is described as romantic and soulful. With the use of museum grade supports and quality mediums, you can be assured of a lasting piece of work.
"It will not leave me - my passion to paint. After a short period void of painting (time out to design and build our home), I return fueled with an abundance of creativity. I love painting and cannot imagine my life without it.
I feel my work emphasises the expression of my inner feelings, seeking to depict subjective emotions and responses. I enjoy working through each piece, feeling its statement along the way and knowing that someone else will continue to have the same enjoyment. My passion has been the essence of my foundation as an artist.”
