Jane Duckfield

“Crazily titled cottages in tumultuous Scottish landscapes” – so wrote and early critic. Jane, though Yorkshire born, has lived in, loved and painted Scotland in all its moods for nearly ten years.

Discouraged by anxious parents from an art career, later in life Jane was introduced to watercolour by Jean B Martin – firstly at the Forgan Art Center and subsequently an HNC in Fine Art at Dundee Collage.

From first exhibiting some ten years ago, Jane now has a growing demand for her work and prefers to take part in mixed rather than solo exhibitions. She now has a strong representation of her work in a number of important Scottish galleries, and one in England, and is encouraged by a growing number of “collectors”.

Increasingly using acrylics, recent trends have been to challenging colour combinations and towards expressionism or “beyond realism”.
