Jane works in a variety of mediums; oil, water colour, pastel, acrylics, and inks, always careful to use archival quality supports and mediums and ‘artist's quality' paints and inks.  Jane has won prizes in all her mediums. Her rich selection of subjects includes nudes, landscapes, seascapes, docks and wharves, people, animals and still life's, and more recently, large abstracts of vibrant colour and gold leaf.
