Originally from England, Jayne is a self-taught artist and photographer who now lives in the Houston area. She fell in love with art as she was growing up in England and, on moving to the U.S., continued to enjoy working in acrylics and oil pastels to create landscape paintings of the English countryside that she left behind. However, after opening her home to a number of furry felines, Jayne stopped creating art for several years.
As Jayne says 'With long haired cats in the house, keeping the fur out of the paint got to be too much of a challenge.'
When she was introduced to the 3D digital graphics program Bryce in 2004 a whole new world of artistic possibilities opened up to her. Since that introduction, she has branched out and expanded her skills and now uses Vue Esprit and DAZ 3D to create art in a variety of styles, including landscapes, equine art and abstracts.
In addition to her original 3D digital renderings, she enjoys taking photographs of the beauty she sees around her, particularly the flowers, butterflies and birds that abound in her Certified Wildlife Habitat garden.
