Jane Reeves

Jane works in the fascinating medium of painted and fused glass, creating unique and beautiful images inspired by the British coastline.

Jane graduated from Bath Academy of Art, in 1987 and worked in theatre publishing and illustration before concentrating on painting. Over recent years she has perfected her technique of using glass powders in a painterly way bringing together her two passions for painting and kiln-fired glass.

Jane works from her studio in Bristol, and has a particular love of the Cornish coast, where the clear quality of the light, the energy captured where the sea meets the land and the refreshing spirit of the landscape define the content of her work. Many years spent visiting the old fishing village of St Ives and the surrounding North Cornwall coastline, have left a deep sense of connection. This feeds into Jane’s method of working which begins with many hours of observing, sketching and photographing.

Alongside the painted glass seascapes Jane also has a popular range of naive and colourful fused glass pictures featuring cottages, beaches, birds and boats.

Jane is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society.
