A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists

 

Jane Bayne

Jane, originally from Hamilton, Ontario, has resided in Kitchener for the past 47 years. She drew as a teenager and has always been involved in an artistic vein throughout her adult life. Although Jane began painting professionally in watercolour, she is now focusing on acrylics to capture local scenes with intriguing light.
Jane is a member of the Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists (KWSA).   She has been an active member of Uptown Gallery in the Shoppes, Waterloo for the past nine years.  She has been accepted in a number of juried shows in Kitchener-Waterloo, Etobicoke, and Barrie.  Her work has been displayed in both Kitchener and Waterloo Libraries, Homer Watson Gallery, Your Tourism Store, KOR Gallery, and Kuntz House Gallery. Her work can also be viewed at the Frames by Verne Gallery in Kitchener.   She has completed several well-received commissions. 
 
Jane's professional development includes workshop instruction from Vicki Brophy, Donnah Cameron, David Crow, Art Cunanan,  Laura Culic, Sheila Karrow, Barry McCarthy, Ken MacFarlane, Sheila MacDonald Roberts, and Laura Urquhart,  just to name a few.  She studied under the expert guidance of watercolourist Bert Williams for four years.
 
Her work focuses on images she captures through her camera lens while on walks through local walking paths and natural areas.  Hidden Valley comprises a great deal of her interest since she feels it is of upmost importance to save environmentally sensitive areas for future generations to enjoy.
