New Artist Alert
We are delighted to introduce Jane Elizabeth to our portfolio of artists.
"Images of endangered wild animals occur so often in the media that they are at risk of becoming a mere cliché of themselves. By portraying them in heightened or unexpected colours and in a moment of thought and intention, I hope to restore their individuality and remind the viewer that they are living sentient beings with emotions and personality.
I begin each piece with a focus solely on the animal's intention, but no specific plan, painting loosely and intuitively until a colour scheme emerges to reflect their character. From there, I paint with a precarious balance of control and intuition to try and capture the creature's energy and free spirit.
