Jane gets up at 6am each morning to work on her drawing, enjoying the quiet solitude of a sleeping household. She is often accompanied by one of her favourite creative podcasts such as @talkingwithpainters . Her session reaches a natural conclusion when her nearly adult son arises late morning!
Working with the inspiring Anna Thomas collections informs the way she sees colour in the world. During the Covid19 isolation Jane made a series of leaf drawings to celebrate the glorious palette of Autumn.
She has been attending a private five-hour weekly art class for nearly a decade, (currently by Zoom). From time to time she exhibits her work.
During isolation Jane has loved watching the English @phillip_mould_gallery “Art in Isolation Series” on Instagram, and extending her cooking skills with the Karen Martini “Home” cookbook.
Her recent time at home highlighted the importance of interconnectivity. With the innovative use of technology, she was inspired by how resourceful and adaptable we have each become.
This coat is the newest addition to her collection! She loves the style name reference to style icon Wallis Simpson.
With an undying love for Anna’s coats and over 17 years of working with the collection, Jane has almost as many coats, every Winter adding another!
The Simpson Coat brings a unique new silhouette to Jane’s wardrobe and a fresh palette to her extensive collection.
