Jane Shaw

In 2013, Jane and her family, moved to Dorset after living in the French Alps for a number of years.  She has returned to sculpture later in life, having discovered it whilst at school and was  also drawn to it intermittently, during her business career in London and abroad.   

On moving to Dorset, she has revived her love for sculpture inspired by her life long interest in animals and the outdoors. Jane is passionate about the portrayal of both animals and humans, and often working directly from life, she focuses on movement and the overall essence of her subject.   She has just won 1st prize at Bath & West 2016, second year in a row.

 

Alongside her sculpting career Jane runs ‘Art 4 All’ which  is an art class, specifically designed for individuals who feel isolated from their community through mental illness, or disability where art can assist them either physically, mentally (or both) in expressing themselves and overcoming challenges.

 

Jane continues on her own sculpture projects, producing work in both bronze and bronze resin and is now beginning to develop larger scale projects in plaster which can be cast in bronze or resin for the outdoors. 

All sculptures are a limited edition in either bronze or bronze resin (4 – 6 week lead time for casting).
