Jane Jefferys, Artist
I use acrylic paints. I have all sorts of different media that l like to add to the paintings — digital imagery, jewellery, a variety of textiles, hardware, metallic paints. I love how they add to the story I am creating.
For commission work I tell a story of the persons life. I try to include pieces of their culture, interests, heritage, hobbies, loved ones, places they have travelled, moments in their lives that can be captured on canvas.
For fun, I do abstract pieces with brilliant bold colours. I love to find the perfect combination of colours to make the painting just right. The painting feels complete when it is soothing to my eyes. I look for depth, contrast, balance and an ease of flow about the canvas.
