Jane Flowers

CV

 

Jane Flowers is an award winning Australian artist who specialises in oils.

She has a deep affinity with nature, the ocean and the outback which allows her to translate her interpretations into unique and striking artworks that have gained a strong following among art lovers, collectors and interior designers. The landscapes and seascapes that Flowers creates have the ability to make a room come to life by subtlely transforming the natural beauty of the outdoors into a stunning interior space. Flowers draws inspiration from her regular travels around the world to capture the essence of a time and place. "I cannot paint what I have not seen or felt on my skin."

A keen yachtswoman, diver, beachcomber and adventurer, Flowers is passionate about the protection of wildlife and marine life in Australia's natural ecosystems. She has been a professional artist for over 25 years following careers in teaching, advertising and graphic design.
