i’ve been threatening to write a post about my friend jane and i think the time has come! it will give me an excuse to show off her beautiful style of art. jane is pretty amazing. not only does she work 2 jobs, but she somehow manages to find the time to create a wellspring of unique and beautiful collages.
they are small pieces, composed of papers, paint, words, wisdom and often her beautiful and very distinctive lettering. she loves poetry and usually finds a way to include just the perfect line or two.
she also makes prayer flags and altered books. each one different, each one lovely.
you may be thinking – wow, her work is so unusual and interesting -where does she sell it? does she have an etsy shop? and the answer would be no. she does not sell her work – in fact, she gives it away!! if jane is your friend, you are a lucky person….. because she is really into mail art and every time she sends you something in the mail, it is a personal piece of art!
jane is a school librarian (we met working at the same school) and every year she hosts her own little poetry café. it’s such a fabulous event for all involved. last year i wrote a post about it here. i think every school should get on board and have one too!
well, i so wanted to share this with all of you and put this beautiful work out into the world where it belongs!! i have really seen jane’s art evolve in the last few years. i’m guessing maybe it won’t be free forever.....
