In childhood, Jane was considered to be a talented ballet dancer with advanced ability. (Jane does not box).
The ballet coach from The National Ballet of Washington D.C., who taught in York, Pennsylvania, Jane's hometown, suddenly retired in Jane's pre-teens. Jane became a Painter. As a child, Jane's innate "right-brained" vision and athletic coordination enabled her to draw and paint form and space — on a large scale — before she had formal art training. In childhood, Jane was simultaneously advanced in dance, visual art and music, abilities inherited from both sides of her family. Jane is a dancer who paints. She was put on point before she was ten, and gave piano recitals and won city-wide art competitions by her pre-teens. With her athletic coordination, ballet training, and muscle memory, Jane can also draw another athlete in motion, in real time. In recent art, Jane has been drawing and painting male athletes while they are playing. Jane was a Selected Artist in The Whitney Museum of American Art I.S.P. Jane's Art has been professionally exhibited, published, and collected since her early 20s. Jane has also performed on stages in New York City and Los Angeles. Residing in New York City, Jane Cohen-Rubin is a Contemporary, Heterosexual, Female Artist. Jane is a politically open-minded American Citizen who supports everyone's rights, but she is personally conservative compared to her peers. Jane has always been a self-discipined, law-abiding individual who stays away from wild scenes. A petite ballet dancer who attended York, PA's rough, inner city public schools, Jane had to be tough at a young age. View full biography.
