Jane makes portrait sculptures and statues. Her subjects include figures from the worlds of music, industry, the arts and television, and her statues of Fred Dibnah and Andy Capp are now celebrated Bolton and Hartlepool landmarks. After studying in London at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in theatre arts and working as a professional theatrical scenic artist and prop maker, she continued her studies and went on to gain qualifications in traditional figurative sculpture at Stafford College. Jane established her private sculpture studio in 1998. As a figurative sculptor, she is passionate about not only the human figure and its celebration in 3D form, but the production of lasting, inspirational sculptures embracing traditional craftsmanship and sculptural skills and technique.
For her sculptures, Jane uses the traditional technique of modelling the subject in clay from both life sittings and/or images; The finished clay portraits and figures are moulded and cast using the lost wax process. She welcomes commission enquiries.
