Jane Canfield

Although Jane Canfield is based in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, she is often seen hurtling along in her little van with her poodle – visiting out west or up and down the coast, working from life wherever possible.

“Nothing brings me greater joy than to be working en Plein Air, working quickly to try to capture the moment. Colours and shapes attract me and ‘looking through to something’. Maybe a distant view or just a panel of light at the end of a road. Working from life makes me work fast. Changing light, vans parking in front of me! Anything can change from moment to moment. So by being more instant, I hope to capture the feeling and retain a freshness and spontaniety in my work."

"My influences are wide and varied. Growing up in an artistic family, (my father, Tony Canfield was a professional artist) my painting comes from an impressionist background. However, I hope I am developing my own style. I greatly admire the Australian artists of the 1920-s – 1950’s the French Impressionists and the American Modernists. I think as artists, we absorb from reading and looking and I never know when or how it will affect me, often years later. I am equally drawn to both natural and urban environments." Jane Canfield, March 2014

Jane has exhibited regularly in solo and group shows mainly in Sydney and in the towns and villages of the Blue Mountains. She has also exhibited in Victoria and Queensland and been a regular finalist and occasional winner of art shows.

Jane is often sought out for commissions and her work has been collected in Australia and abroad.

Jane is currently residing in the Northern Rivers for a few months. undertaking a private residency and exploring the different character of landscapes and structures in this region. Lots more work to see yet from this talented artist and just a sample below.
