Jane Canfield

"As I write, I am looking out the window of my 1850’s Sandstone Inn, West of the Blue Mountains. It’s a view that must have changed a lot since those early days of Cobb & Co coaches and candlelight, but a constant is a rolling hillside with changing light, rain, and the seasons playing across the valley. As artist Margaret Olley said ‘It’s all about the Light’ .

I hope my work reveals my love of life and tranquility that I often feel either at home in the studio, or if I am travelling, finding inspiration in my 1974 VW Kombi ‘Dot’ with my little dogs.”
