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.
