After completing her Bachelor's Degree in Landscape Architecture she pursued a professional career and became a leading landscape architect in Sonoma County, California. Moving to Truckee in 2006 ignited her passion to focus on painting and exploring the local landscape.


Often found hiking, running, biking or skiing she is forever on the lookout for creative inspiration for her work. Jane brings landscapes to life in oil on the canvas, capturing the light, movement and magic of nature.
