Jane Everett grew up in Winnipeg and completed her Fine Arts degree at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.  Engaged in painting in oil on canvass, and drawing on vellum with charcoal, graphite, and conte, her work reevaluates traditional materials and media with iconoclastic method.  Her waterscape paintings verge on the abstract, using complex layerings of colour to render the undulating surface of water in an intricate study of light and form.  Her drawings cover a broad range of subject matter from construction sites and bridges to her series of backyard birds.  For the past number of years she has lived in Western Canada, while her work is exhibited across the country in both private and public galleries, and held in corporate and private collections.
