Jane Shaw studied at Manchester University and spent her early career with a firm of Fine Art Valuers and Consultants in London. On moving to Dorset in 2013, she rediscovered her love of sculpture.
She is inspired by her lifelong interest in wildlife and the outdoors. She is passionate about capturing the overall essence and movement of both animals and wildlife and on the power and character of each individual animal by using fluid, spontaneous and strong gestural strokes. Jane works in a variety of materials such as plaster, wax or clay depending on what she is trying to achieve. Often working directly from life, she produces bronzes for both inside the home as well as garden pieces on a larger scale. Jane lives and works from her studio in Dorset.
