Jane Housham - Artist


I try to keep as much of my past ‘alive' as possible by thinking and writing about it. Even the difficult things – the sad or disturbing experiences – have value and have helped to form us. When past experience is re-presented as art, it's changed. Drawing on the self through memories and personal associations as the basis for some of my art adds meaning to it for me, even if other people can't always directly access the meaning things may have for me. I like the way that also reminds us of our ultimate aloneness.

I have two main ways of working. I mostly either paint in acrylics on canvas or I work in oil pastel over large digital prints. I also do collage and various mixed-media combinations.
