Jane Cort EAGMA
I draw much of my inspiration from the beautiful and ever changing North Norfolk coastline, although I am also interested in capturing still life and interior subjects in my favourite medium - pure watercolour. My preliminary plein air sketches help me to capture the essence of the subject that interests me and these always form the basis of my larger studio pieces. My aim is to convey an atmospheric impression using loose and painterly brushstrokes and I achieve this by overlaying watercolour washes on handmade paper.
Born in Bedfordshire, Jane initially trained as a graphic designer but began to seriously pursue her keen interest in watercolour painting after moving to North Norfolk. Jane has had two solo exhibitions and has also had her work accepted for a number of prestigious London shows held at The Mall Galleries including:
The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour (RI), The Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA), The National Society (NS) and the annual open exhibition of The Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) at There Bankside Gallery, London.
Jane currently exhibits her watercolours at a variety of mixed exhibitions, both locally and further afield, including the Hawker Gallery in Amersham, Bucks.
