Jane Duckfield is Yorkshire born and educated, and divides her time between painting, mainly watercolours, and as proprietrix of a busy ‘Cats Hotel’ in rural Fife.
Trained at the Forgan Arts Centre and Dundee College, she was described by an art critic at her first exhibition as ‘painting tumbling landscapes in sonorous tones’. Seventeen years residence and love of Scotland provide an abundance of both.
Jane exhibits regularly at galleries in Braemar, St Andrews, Cupar, Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Dundee and Kirkcaldy, where she has been selected in both 1996 and 1997 for a Shell Expo Award at the Fife Artists’ Exhibition. The judges observed ‘A beautiful familiarity with the landscape’.
