My abstractions are investigations into the process of decay and renewal. I explore, neglected corners, crevices, abandoned spaces and nature, for the evidence of time.

Jane Fitzherbert began painting in 1996. She
is mainly interested in the abstract, playing with
colours, shapes and texture. Influenced by the
environment around her and the results of
experimenting with different materials, she starts
by applying paint to the canvas and then allows
instinct to take over. Her painting style has
evolved over the years and many phases of her
work are represented in this retrospective

During her career as an artist, Jane studied art at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia and sculpture at Chelsea Polytechnic in London. She also, studied ceramics with Outer Eastern TAFE and in the 1980s-90s taught ceramics at “Potters School in Warrandyte” Victoria Australia. During the 1990s- 2000s Jane studied painting & drawing with artists, Shane Merry, Richard-Granville- Smith and Dr. Annette Iggulden.  Today, Jane works from her studio in the Yarra Valley and also, attends weekly painting sessions with fellow artists.


Instagram Marketing for Artists & Creatives.

Instagram Marketing for Artists & Creatives.

Lately, I’ve been studying a course with Dottie Media created for business owners, artists and creatives who want to make the most from their Instagram marketing.  I thought it might be a fun way to get my artwork out there and seen .

I find it’s quite addictive and a fun way to market my arts practice.

Below, are some images I’ve been playing around with.

I really think it’s time, to get back into a gallery and start exhibiting again in 2016.

So, I’m looking for suitable spaces in Melbourne or Sydney, that aren’t too expensive.

My favourite thing to make, at  Free Tutorials  is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.

In the Studio. Painting. & Study.

After a short break in warm Queensland, (freezing today in the Yarra Valley) I’m back in the studio, working on a series of large paintings for my next solo exhibition.

I’m also feeling, very inspired to create something with a pile of old sandstone blocks, I’ve had laying around for years. They have weathered beautifully!

In between, I need to finish my course with Dottie Media

and start the new one with Stephanie Levy.

Will be nice when it gets warmer in Melbourne:)
