Jane Bennett lives and works in the Brecon Beacons. She studied art at Leicester College of Education, at Cardiff College of Art and more recently she completed an MA in Fine Art, Contextual Studies at Swansea College of Art.
Jane's captivating portraits are centred around her interest in discovered photographs of unknown individuals and family groups. Allowing the mind to wander into thoughts of their lives, names and associations, she paints tender and reflective portraits that, in turn, allow us to create connections with the people within her work. We have been very moved by both the intentions and results of her practice and view her paintings as motifs of human kinship which has great resonance in our current times.
