Jane is an artist based in Dublin, Ireland.
She paints, draws and sculpts and has a keen interest in dance and interactive art works. She draws inspiration from the natural world, making links between nature, philosophy, physics, language and communication.
"My work is inspired by nature, the physical and the spiritual connection between the two, intertwined.
It's a journey about allowing myself to be open to change, the process of destroying and remaking, the building up of layers and letting the piece of work find its own language. There's always a struggle but out of that struggle comes the work. It's an adventure that has no end."

Thought as in play
"If science always insists that a new order must
be immediately fruitful, or that it has some new predictive power, then creativity will be blocked. New thoughts generally arise with a play of mind, and the fallout to appreciate this is actually one of the major blocks to creativity. Thought is generally considered a sober and weighty business. But here it is being suggested that creative play is an inessential element in forming new hypotheses and ideas. Indeed, thought which tries to avoid play is in fact playing false with it self. Play, it appears, is of the very essence of thought."
David Bohm - Science, Order and Creativity
"I have a feeling that my boat
has struck, down there in the depths,
against a great thing.
happens! Nothing... Silence... Waves...
- Nothing happens? Or has everything happened,
And are we standing now, quietly, in the new life?"
Juan Ramon Jinenez
Schools Kill Creativity
"We Think about the world in all the ways that we experience it. We think in sound, we think visually, we think kinesthetically. We think in abstract terms, we think in movement..... creativity more often than not, comes about through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing"
Sir Ken Robinson
The Wisdom of Insecurity
"Belief, as I use here, is the insistence, that the truth is what one would "lief" or wish to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on condition that it fits in with his preconceived
ideas and wishes. Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, what ever may turn out to be. Faith has no preconception, it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings, but faith lets go. In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self deception."
Alan W. Watts - The Wisdom of Insecurity
