Jane Merfield

'Some places just have a habit of resurfacing in my memory. They may not be that extraordinary visually but always have a peculiarity of atmosphere. I take these fleeting images and work and play, using matt and gloss paints, adding pattern and relief to disrupt the surface until something of that original oddness looks back at me' says Jane of her beautiful, contemplative work.

She trained in both painting and sculpture, at Camberwell and Brighton. Just as important to her are the times she spent living abroad. Several years in Italy, teaching, painting and generally living a simple life in the depths of the countryside were followed by a year on the southern most tip of mainland Greece. 'Certain imagery from this land of ghosts has never left me and I continue to return there whenever possible.' Jane's work is held in corporate and private collection in the UK and abroad.
