Jane Appleby is a passionate painter, spending much of her time in nature, admiring and capturing what she calls the “visual music” of the landscape, frequenting local mountains and forests and the shorelines of Galiano Island for inspiration. She works on location or from her Burnaby studio in oils, acrylics and watercolours. Initially self-taught, she has received a certificate of Fine Arts Technique at Emily Carr University and also obtained a Biology Degree from Simon Fraser University.
Jane enjoys teaching art and has offered workshops within Vancouver, Place Des Arts-Coquitlam, Okanagan School of Arts, The Whyte Museum in Banff and on Cunard Cruise lines overseas. She also shares her art on her YouTube Channel: Jane Appleby Art and has authored two books, her latest: "The Purposeful Brush." Jane's art has received several awards including an award of excellence from the Federation of Canadian Artists Abstract show 2012, and 2nd Place in the Plein Air Competition 2020 at the
McMichael Art Museum.
Jane's paintings are collected internationally and have been exhibited in Canada, Spain, Monaco
and Italy. She is represented by several galleries in BC and Alberta and is grateful to be showing her latest
Lyrical Expressions at Gallery George.
