Jane Davies: Mistress of Mixed Media, Painting & Collage
Jane Davies is a full time artist working in collage, painting, mixed media, and encaustics. She offers workshops at her studio and nationwide, focusing on helping people to find a personal and playful approach to creating.
Beginning as a potter in the early nineties, selling her colorful hand-painted ceramics at craft shows, Davies gradually transitioned into freelance art, designing tableware, quilting fabric, paper goods, stationery, and other products, using painting and collage as her medium. For the past several years, Davies has put most of her efforts towards teaching, writing, and having fun making art.
Her latest book, Adventures in Mixed Media showcases her many talents through wonderful projects for all levels. In her DVD, Scribble Collage with Hand-Painted Paper, Jane makes complex paintings look simple with her clear demonstrations and insight.
