Jane trained at Berkshire College of Art and Bath Academy of Art, where she obtained a Dip.Ed. (Hons) in three-dimensional design. She has taught art and design at secondary level since then, with break while her children were young.

Jane’s work has always suited the stoneware firing process, with matt and textured surfaces, using slips, oxides and dry glazes.
