The oil painting shown above is an early self-portrait painted from life and imagination in 1996. It is titled "Champion." It symbolizes Jane's inner power and her femininity.
Dancer Who Paints
In childhood, Jane was simultaneously advanced in dance, visual art and music, abilities inherited from both sides of her family.
Due to Jane's dance ability, a Soloist from The National Ballet put Jane on point before she was 10-years old. (The usual age for a girl to start dancing on point is 12-13). Jane had advanced athletic ability. However, that ballet coach suddenly retired in Jane's pre-teens. In Jane's small hometown of York, PA there was nowhere else to seriously train. Jane's primary focus became painting.
While Jane is obviously not joining a ballet company as she had to stop training in her pre-teens, during 2010, Jane began to choreograph contemporary dance and compose music. This movement and sound are related to Jane's recent paintings and drawings created at live sports events.
Jane can draw another athlete in motion, realistically, in real time. This ability comes from her own athletic coordination and muscle memory

Every Sole Proprietor of a business — and every Fine Artist — should understand this:
In our media-run world, you cannot allow others to tell stories about you. They will use the media to assassinate you, while simultaneously stealing from you and exploiting your talents.
