Jane is a Coast Salish artist from the Chemainus Nation and mother of artists John, Luke and Angela.
Jane started carving under the mentorship of Simon Charlie in 1984 and worked on art projects with him until 2005.
Totem poles, ceremonial rattles, dolls, talking sticks, dancing sticks, paddles, and ceremonial masks have become Jane's specialties. Although her main medium is wood, she has become proficient in watercolor, painting scenes with symbols that depict her native culture. Her inspiration comes from old Salish Art and nature. She believes that we need traditional symbols but we must dream new dreams and invent new art that speaks to us in our present day.
