Jane Harris grew up and lives in Zurich, Switzerland. An expressive painting style with many colors is characteristic for her work. Acrylic is the color she mainly works with. At the beginning of an image Jane starts out with a figure and subsequently she lets its surrounding and structure develope. It's an interplay between planning and coincidence. Destruction at specific points of inconvenient states of a picture helps the intended rythm to evolve. Jane also likes to alternate between periods of slow an fast brushwork. Having experimented with several motifs, mostly humans, Jane Harris found the woman to be the creature she wants to continue working with.
