About the Artist

Jane Flewellen

Artist Statement


“I paint because I love beauty. While we experience difficulties and pain in life, we can also have pleasure and joy in beauty. Something remarkable will catch my eye…I’ll think, ‘Wow, I want to paint That!’ My oil paintings capture these unique moments of beauty to share with others.”

Jane Flewellen is drawn to natural subjects, especially landscapes and people. Having grown up in the densely-wooded hills of New York, Jane often paints trees. She finds inspiration in the Columbus Metro Parks, the Ohio landscape, her neighborhood, and on vacations to Maine, Canada, Italy and Scotland. She is fascinated by the contrast of light and shadow, the nuances of color, and interesting lines and shapes.

Often painting from her own photographs, she also is exploring the challenge of painting from direct observation of figures, still lifes and en plein air.




Since childhood, Jane has loved art and drawing. Growing up near New York City exposed her to great art. In high school, she received college-level art instruction from a superb teacher. Jane pursued a Fine Arts major at the University of Michigan, concentrating on painting and drawing.

Her award-winning paintings have been juried in the Zanesville Museum of Art, the Ohio State Fair (professional division), the Ohio Percent for Art Program, and numerous other exhibits in Ohio, Indiana and Virginia. Her paintings have been in solo, two-person and invitational exhibits. Sharon Weiss Gallery represents her work in Columbus, Ohio.

Jane lives with her husband, Jim, in Worthington, Ohio.
