Her current practice includes dyeing, stitching and feltmaking using a variety of experimental techniques developed over many years, fusing these disciplines to produce a range of unique and original wearable art pieces and fashion accessories using a wide and eclectic range of vibrant colours and textures.

Jane designs and makes quilts, small accessory pieces, bags, wall hangings and cushions . I mainly use cotton, wool and silk. Some of the silk pieces I use come from Japanese kimonos and obis.

I like to work closely with customers on commission pieces. There are so many styles of quilts to explore; Amish are one of my favourites as the quilting is so complicated.
