Artist Statement

My stone sculptures are mystical in nature.  
An AJC reviewer once said " Jane creates dreams in stone".
My art reflects the coexistence of the conscious and subconscious, 
the symbolic and literal, and the ancient and modern. 

I am a direct carver. I draw directly on the stone. With an idea in my mind, I start chiseling. 
Being a figurative sculptor I usually start an idea  that revolves around the human form. 
Sometimes I am inspired by an object. I have added interesting found objects that 
suggest wings or neckpieces.  

It is a discovery of the unconscious.  Your body follows what your creative self dictates.
My art evolves usually as I create it.

 I am especially interested in combining various materials. I pay homage 
to the Greco-Roman roots of stone in sculpture.  I  place Greco/Roman heads on  contemporary bodies. 
  From the Romans, I borrow the process of combining differnt stones in one figure .
The winged figure is one of my favorite  Greek motifs.  

 Lately I have been introducing the silhouette flat shape of a face with the more rounded form of the body. 
Contrasting the angular with the curvilinear shapes is of interest to me.

 My stone sculptures invite the viewer to interpret thus creating their own stories
