Now living in Korea, Jane Mitchell is a Graduate of Otago Fine Art School, where she received her Diploma with Honours in Painting in 1992. Mitchell’s exceptional media use imbues every work with an unmistakable atmosphere and presence. Her trademark use of texture, along with exceptionally confident and unexpected use of colour, lends vibrancy and energy to the compositions. Jane also has a background in teaching art, having held the position of Head of Department at New Plymouth Girls’ High School between the years 1994 -1997. A five-year stint in London, where she exhibited regularly, developed Jane Mitchell’s uniquely textural style and often geometric composition, with works from that period showing a hard-edged synthesis of urban landscape.
