Core Values

janefirst is CUSTOM DESIGN by Jane Rubin. This is NOT a template.
This is NOT someone else's framework. I also do NOT sketch, wireframe
or research, before I design, because, I do not have to. I can see it,
and do it, without any of that stuff. As the focus of this site is
my paintings and drawings, I am not including a lot of motion or
interactive bells and whistles. The Design is in progress.

All Paintings and Drawings on this site will be updated
with high resolution images.

childhood: ballet

LEFT   Point Shoes   Pencil on paper    1977

This is a drawing of my point shoes at age 14, before I had any formal art training.

As a toddler, I was scouted. My coordination was noticed in a dance performance, and I was put in a ballet class in York, taught by a member of The National Ballet. She put me on point at a young age, and had a barre installed in our home. She retired in my pre-teens. With nowhere else to continue, my focus became painting. In my teens I taught a modern-jazz class, when the Instructor could not get to PA from New York City. She wrote to my parents: CLICK HERE.
