Jane Muir

Jane Muir

Jane Muir specialises in idiosyncratic hand painted figures that represent a witty and uncluttered observation of the world. Figures that stand alone or placed in an architectural landscape are hand modelled, allowing her the freedom to sketch with clay and develop ideas during the making process. Jane’s figures are not about specific individuals but are a personification of character.

Their anonymity allows us to identify for ourselves familiar individuals. Subtle colour and seductive surface textures are key elements in her work; immensely appealing but never sentimental.

Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, America and Japan.
