JANE THOMPSON

Jane’s artwork is vibrant and full of moving energy. She is inspired and fascinated by the energy we create as human beings through our emotions, our intentions and our experiences. By tapping into the space that exits between thoughts, the active state of creating for Jane, is conversely almost meditative. By quietening the mind, she allows her sub-conscious to intuitively make the decisions and show her the way.

Jane works predominantly with acrylics, oil pastels, wax pastels and charcoal. Their adaptable and fast drying nature enable her to capture the energy and freedom in the spontaneous moment.

Through her unique style, contrasting hues of light and dark and expressive gestural marks, Jane’s art evokes joyful optimism, personal reflection and bold inspiration. 

Her paintings are colourful, intuitive, expressive and spontaneous. And the process absolutely always involves music!

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home”  Twyla Tharpe.

BIOGRAPHY

Born and raised on a farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, the bush and nature have been Jane’s friends for as long as she can remember – they are her places of peace, freedom, solace, solitude and, most importantly, her inspiration.

Escaping the chilly southern winters, Jane spent a number of years living and working in the outback, where her travels and adventures took her from the wide expanses of Broken Hill, all the way to the vast, rugged and extraordinary Kimberly region of WA.
