Jane lives in Glossop. She produces hand embroidered pictures. These include landscapes in silk thread on hand-painted backgrounds, contemporary goldwork and calico-encrusted garden themes in shades and tones of one colour. Of particular interest is her recent development of the complex and fascinating style of ‘stumpwork’ embroidery which contains flat, padded and free standing embroidery, where the use of materials such as beads and wires provide further textural and decorative detail.
In addition she creates original designs for cross stitch embroidery, using a variety of subject matter from photographic and historical sources.
