Hi I am Jane. I am a senior creative currently based in Auckland, New Zealand. Design, Illustration, Art and Photography are my greatest passion and I love them as a means to bring stories and characters to life. I work both digitally and traditionally, besides using my computer I also draw with colour pencils, graphite, pastels and watercolours and often mix them together.
As a designer and illustrator I have 20 years of international experience. I have lived in Germany, Hong Kong and New Zealand, worked for boutique design agencies and clients directly (local and overseas) and ran my own design studio and art gallery with offices in Germany and Hong Kong.
My art is focused on animals and the environment and intends to bring awareness to the beautiful world we live in. My works are regularly featured in exhibitions and I also sell it as art prints my Etsy Shop.
