Jane makes bold, playful wooden jewellery which she hand turns and hand paints in her studio near the North Norfolk Coast. Working with geometric forms, repetition and colour, her inspiration comes from a variety of sources. Her current range is influenced by classic educational toys, which focus on developing basic skills such as dexterity and counting through play. Jane uses traditional woodworking techniques and manages a small woodland which provides a sustainable supply of sycamore for her work.

Jane is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (1994-1996) and Duncan of Jordanstone College, Dundee (1990-1993). On graduation, she lectured at various colleges & universities in the UK at foundation, degree and postgraduate level. It was whilst lecturing on the BA (Hons) Crafts programme at the University of Derby, that she was influenced by the programme’s ethos of sustainability, which drives her current practice.

In 2010 she moved to Norfolk to refocus on her practice.
