Jane Crosby - Artist

about the artist

My life was transformed by watercolour painting after I finished a thirty-year career in health care. I now find deep satisfaction in composing, drawing, and creating a painting, preferring a slow process with multiple layers that create texture and depth.


Detailed paintings of flowers, old teacups, and vintage finds are my favourite subjects, but sometimes I venture with a looser style into landscapes and other subjects.


One of my accomplishments is a series of the provincial and territorial flowers of Canada, created for a colleague’s book “Positively Canadian”. See more at positivelycanadian.net


My artist mentors have given me outstanding instruction and I am deeply grateful for their guidance. I have also taken numerous excellent courses at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where I obtained a Certificate in Fine Art Techniques.


I am an Associate Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists; see more at: https://artists.ca/. I have shown my works at Vancouver’s Federation Gallery and other venues in the city. 


I love painting in the sanctuary of my home studio.  When not in my studio, I enjoy tending my garden, reading, travelling, and spending time with family, friends, and two dogs. 


Thank you for your interest in my art!
