JANE SKINGLEY

English artist Jane Skingley was born in 1963 in Dover, Kent on the English south coast. Subsequently brought up in Sussex, she has a Masters degree from Durham University and an MBA from Cranfield Business School. She had an early career in financial PR but gave it up to pursue her true love – painting. She studied under Charles McKinnon and began painting professionally in 2007. 

Jane paints seascapes, landscapes and still lifes in oil. Her first exhibition was a sell out and since then she has gone from strength to strength exhibiting in galleries throughout the UK and Europe. Jane has exhibited at a number of venues including the acclaimed Glyndebourne Opera House in East Sussex and the Mall Galleries, London.

 

Her work is often rich in texture and she is interested in random mark making, believing that each mark has a beauty and energy that cannot be created through meticulous painting. Much of each painting is created through flicking and dripping, giving each painting a certain edge.
