Jane Smith -A Sense of Place
Jane’s art is largely inspired by her surroundings, whether at home or travelling. Places, buildings and streetscapes feature strongly in her sketches, printmaking and painting. Working as a London based illustrator and artist since 1985, she grew up in Liverpool,
West Wales and Yorkshire, studied Graphic Design at (formerly) Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic.
Jane began by designing for the Radio Times/BBC and an illustration career followed
which continues to the present. She has worked for a wide variety of clients in the worlds of publishing, design, advertising, newspapers, the third sector, hospitals and private clients.
Illustration clients have included:
NHS, BBC, Ted Baker, Habitat, Jamie Oliver, JC Decaux, Royal Court Theatre,
Labour Party, Museum of London, Baileys, British Airways, IBM, Nokia, Gardener’s World Magazine
Guardian, Times, Financial Times, Independent, Telegraph, Nursing Times
New Internationalist, Amnesty International, Time Out, City & Guilds,
Consumers’ Association, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Lonely Planet Publications, Oxford University Press, BMJ and many more.
Jane exhibits periodically, runs workshops in schools and sells work online.
