“My paintings explore contrasts: the broad painterly sweep of the sky and the sea
against the specific drawn details of human habitation. I often search for an elevated
viewpoint to observe the order and structure of the man-made within the landscape,
combining contrasting approaches of fluid gestural mark making and specific linear
details. Certain landscapes I return to again and again, finding new ways to interpret
and reinterpret the key elements that make that place special.”

Jane Askey was born in North Staffordshire. She studied Printed Textile Design at Manchester Polytechnic in 1980s, subsequently working as a freelance textile designer and lecturer before becoming a full-time painter.
Travelling and exploring are central to her practice: she frequently visits the places she finds interesting, sketching on location to deepen her visual enquiry and understanding of place.
Back in the studio, she references sketchbooks and photographs using a wide range of media on canvas, paper, and gesso wooden panels to interpret a variety of subjects with a particular focus on landscape. Her paintings are held in private collections throughout the world.
