Jane Geurts, BA, BEd, MEd (UNB), Diploma in Creative Art and Design
Born in England, Jane studied drawing, painting and graphic design in Ontario, and followed her passion for teaching with a long career as a design instructor at the New Brunswick College of Art and Design. Jane's great sense of humour made her a favourite with her students for over 30 years. Currently Jane is a full-time artist, skillfully combining paint and mixed media techniques to create her unique paintings. Jane also regularly shares her painting techniques in workshops, both in Fredericton and Provence, France.
“Restraint” has never been one of my strong suits, so with creative play and a sense of humour I forge ahead with any canvas or paper daring to cross my path. The landscape takes on a whole new meaning, as I extract a sense, a feeling, a reaction to what I am looking at. The painting becomes a visual narrative; the image embraces my sometimes unorthodox approach, using a collection of mixed media, including acrylic, watercolour or gold and silver foils.”
Jane’s vast experience as professor at the New Brunswick College of Art and Design has led her to regularly conduct popular summer painting retreats for women in the beautiful and idyllic South of France.
