Jane Strawbridge

Jane is an artist living and working on the edge of the Pennines in Yorkshire.  She works with Paper Mache and mixed media to create a range of small quirky sculptures. She keeps the use of colour to a minimum to concentrate on the textures, lines, and tones; particularly the wearing away of layers and revealing of sub layers, as the weather does to the land.  Jane has worked as an artist for over twenty years, in a variety of materials. Her sculptures are always strongly influenced by her everyday life. People and animals met on daily dog walks set the seed of an idea. The materials then come into play and direct each piece’s development. Jane uses found materials wherever possible, giving each figure a strong character. These materials give a sense of a history to the existence of each piece.
