Working in her purpose built studio in the Lincolnshire countryside Jayne hand makes every element of her artwork. The heavily textured backgrounds to the intricate models and ceramic additions are all formed using a wealth of household tools making her artwork uniquely identifiable, often taking inspiration from the British wildlife she so loves to watch from the studio windows combined with a love of high-
Married to the Impossimal creator and world renowned artist Peter Smith, Jayne is also a self taught artist although the first twenty one years of her working life was spent in account departments before becoming a full time professional artist and her thirst for knowledge knows no bounds; ceramic modelling and pattern creation, painting, sewing, needle felting, woodworking, wire work (silver and non precious), papermaking, calligraphy, automaton construction, willow weaving, Japanese book binding and even kiln formed glass are skills which have either been learnt or taught through membership of Art Societies and special artisan tutorials.
It’s difficult to single out any one of the creative projects that Jayne has completed over the years but apart from her latest pieces certainly one of the most ambitious was in 2012 with the creation of a complete interior design range taking a fresh look at stylish interior finishes mixed with a Scandinavian inspired design which became the exclusive ‘Foreverbunny’ range of interior art. Over a hundred finished products were created and sold making this small brand yet another successful niche that Jayne managed to capture.
Jayne’s original artwork has become increasingly sought after by collectors after her launch with one of the UK's top publishing houses Washington Green as her creative wings unfurl and her artwork demands bigger audiences and events. Early in 2016 Jayne released her grandest collection yet with a series of wildlife inspired creations simply called ‘Opulence’ some of which you will find on this website. Further explorations in creativity will see fabrics and metallics along with heavy textures added to several new wildlife designs, full details can of course be found in the galleries and on Jaynes social media accounts.
