Artist's Statement: Since I was eight years old, I have wanted to paint. I started art classes at 13 and never stopped. I believe each person possesses a unique response to life and that it can be expressed in many ways, one of which is Art. My creative method is to allow whatever I feel to rise to the surface and be expressed in my artwork. I watch the painting form and coalesce on the canvas. Without consciously drawing and designing, I paint in a kind of a trance. What seems to have emerged is a journal through painting of my life, emotions, and experiences. For about three years, I have focused on erotic nudes pursuing their fantasies or my painting erotic nudes from life doing that. Whatever I do, whether it's from life or from my imagination, I want to have fun with it. I enjoy the excitement of creating art, and look forward to going wherever it leads me. My painting is my personal adventure, my (dubious) contribution to the world and what makes my life interesting.
I've been exhibiting since 1968, mostly in small galleries, at least twice a year. If you really want to know where I've exhibited, there's a partial list that hasn't been updated on my website: http://www.painterjayne.com
