“I wanted to know what happened if I just made art as a personal inquiry.”

Jane Davies is a full time artist working in paint, drawing media, collage, and occasionally encaustic. She offers workshops nationwide and online, helping people to find a personal and playful approach to art making.  “I am most complimented when someone tells me that my work inspired them to try something new in their own art”.

Beginning as a potter in the early 1990s, Davies transitioned into freelance art in the early 2000’s, creating artwork for manufactured home décor and gift products. Fine art had always been a sideline for Davies, but in 2009 she began giving it her full attention, giving up the freelance work in favor of painting and teaching workshops.

“I realized that I did not really know who I was as an artist.  My work had always been subject to the needs of outside demands – for sale, for a commercial product, or as instructional examples –  and I wanted to know what happened if I just made art as a personal inquiry. I still want to know, and it is that ongoing quest that keeps me motivated”.
