An Atlanta Journal Constitution reviewer once said ” Jane creates dreams in stone”.
My stone sculptures are mystical in nature.The art reflects the coexistence of the
conscious and subconscious, the symbolic and literal, and the ancient and
Being a direct carver, I draw directly on the stone. With an idea in my mind, I start
chiseling. I usually start with an idea that revolves around the human form. It
may be a piece of wood that inspires me because it suggests a drapery or a
broken stone that looks like a silhouette.
It is a discovery of the unconscious. Your hands follow 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 incorporate broken torsos like in
Greco Roman ruins. From the Romans, I borrow the combining of different stones
in one figure .
Lately I have been creating full figure images from cypress and stone. The figures
are about the gesture of the figure and the various combinations of the different
stones. 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
