Jane de France

Jane de France's talent was born from a strong artistic family environment. As a child she was inspired by her grandfathers paintings and her mother's drawings. She has fond memories of sketching horses with her mother from a very young age.

Today Janes inspiration and encouragement comes from many sources including her husband, a singer songwriter.


Jane is a member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and exhibits with exclusive New Zealand Galleries.

She is fortunate that her artwork has attracted a very positive response, sought after to appear on renowned international programme  "Colour In Your Life" by Graeme Stevenson and achieving sales both nationally and internationally.


Her generosity is displayed in her gift to various charities  and is the recipient of several awards. 


Judges award comment - 'Roses in the Storm' is a painting of roses floating in a vaporous mist, de France's subject is caught between

conflicting impressions of serenity and chaos. Yet, here is also an artist who in her finest moments is capable of manipulating paint on 

canvas to its best advantage.


Her awareness of tradition and her technical ability has given her the foundation from which to develop her own style as an expressionist. 

Gorgeous compositions oscillate between modern and traditional and are described as passionate, beautiful, ethereal, opulent and dramatic.


Artist statement: Every painting gives me immense joy and satisfaction, and represents all my feelings and energy of that particular time.

A painting begins with a concept only, seeking subjective emotions and responses to the subject matter. This takes on its own development throughout a process of layering, rubbing back, glazing and reapplying until subtle images suggest the course of direction to each piece of artwork. My work gains richness, luminosity and depth, evoking beauty, serenity and warmth.  

My work has developed as I have as a person. When I look over past work, I see direct influences and reasons for what I have produced. I have a sense of beauty and contentment around me now, which I feel, reflects in my art today.
