Jane Strother studied painting at Bath Academy of Art and has worked as a painter, illustrator, printmaker and teacher. She works from her studio in Oxford and teaches for a number of organisations around the county.
‘I am a studio painter. I devise and build a final image through many stages and layers of paint. The physicality of the paint is the important ‘surface’ layer. Once the subject is established, the form of the work takes precedent. I am excited by composition, colour proportion and value relationships, the quality of a mark and its location.
Subjects are frequently found at the coast or hill country, the more ‘weather’ the better. I observe, sketch, photograph, reflect, often alone or with a like-minded companion. A lifetime’s enthusiasm for topography, natural habitat and wildlife, particularly botany, suggests the detail in an image.’
