Jane de France
Jane de France is an Auckland based artist who paints from her own studio.
Her talent was born from a strong artistic family environment and has achieved sales both nationally and internationally with representation in private and public collections. She has made generous donations to charities and the recipient of several awards. She is a member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.
Her awareness of tradition and her technical ability has given her the foundation from which to develop her own style as an artist. A painting begins with a concept only, seeking subjective emotions and responses. This takes on its own development throughout a process of layering, rubbing back, glazing and reapplying until subtle images become alive and suggest the course of direction to each piece of artwork. Her work gains a rich and luminous quality, evoking beauty, serenity and warmth.
