Jane Wells, Artist
Jane Wells a seventh generation Texan who has drawn and painted all her life. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin.
Her choices of subject matter, the parking lots, cafe chairs, highways and sheds are not what most folks would think is pretty. Jane doesn’t have anything against pretty, and she thinks that weeds in the afternoon light beside the road are pretty, but it is just not the sentimental prettiness of a place that draws her in. Similarly, she is not drawn in by a story or a narrative. Jane does not choose highway overpasses as subject matter because they are primary symbols of modern civilization, not consciously at least, but because the shadows under them are beautiful.
