Jane Upstone BA

Jane Upstone is a painter of abstract and figurative work. She currently resides in Bedfordshire, England where she pursues her love of both drawing and painting. She thinks of her work as a way of exploring the world around her, examining the sensory ramifications of daily encounters with changing seasons and landscapes. Her work oscillates between thickly layered, sensually manipulated surfaces and calm expanses of soft colour washes where drips and runs are allowed to take their own course.

After an early career as a graphic designer she returned to university in 1998 to complete a degree in Fine Art at Reading University, going on to teach art before concentrating solely on her own work as a full time artist. She cites the work of American abstract expressionists such as Sam Francis and Joan Mitchell among her influences as well as the work of Peter Doig and JMW Turner.
