Jane considers the outdoors to be her studio just as much as her poorly-heated but spacious barn studio is. Many of her pieces are created plein air, and are finished or refined (if that word can be associated with Jane's work) back in the studio. Like many artists, Jane appreciates the feedback of others during the refinement process, and she relishes the opportunity to sit in the comfy chairs in her studio and discuss the next move over a cup of tea. Visitors are always welcome to her studio - just bring a coat if it's winter!

Jane doesn't just improvise with her paintings; sometimes the elements require it too. Here, on the road trip to Phoenix, dinner was made possible by using the easel to shelter the camp stove from the incessant wind.
