“I have always loved art and have worked in several mediums with pen and ink and watercolor as one of my favorites. After being bitten by the ‘quilting bug’ in 1992, I traded my watercolor palette for a fabric palette and my pen and ink for thread drawn through the point of a sewing machine needle.”
Jane’s quilts have been part of shows and competitions on local, state, national and international levels. Her work has had the distinct honor of being chosen to hang in AQS shows in Paducah, KY, Nashville, TN, as well as Des Moines, IA, Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA, Road to California in Ontario, CA, several Mancuso sponsored shows and IQA Festival in Houston, TX.
In 2005 Jane was asked by the Belmond Area Arts Council to hang her quilts in a two month single artist show at the Jenison-Meacham Museum in Belmond, IA, where she has one of her pen and ink and watercolor paintings in their permanent art collection.
Her art quilts have also been featured in magazines including Quilting Today, Traditional Quiltworks, Quilters Newsletter Magazine, American Quilter, and $100,000 Quilting Challenge, 2006.
