Jane Atkinson-White
Portraits, Far Away Faces, worth a visit

At the Port Stanley Library portrait artist, Jane Atkinson-White, shows her recent portrait series throughout July 2019. You will see people from close to home as well as from Holland, Scotland, India, and Africa. Brilliant colour, abstract backgrounds, and expressive faces are characteristic of Jane's unique style.

Jane Atkinson-White is inspired by people and the endless variety of subject matter that they provide. Always curious about different personalities, she strives to portray emotion and reveal both the inner and outer beauty of the person. She describes her work as expressionistic rather than realistic avoiding a photographic quality.

Mixed media continues to be Jane's choice in how she creates art. She finds that combining collage with acrylic paint is exciting. For her collage work she paints tissue paper and smaller paintings on paper that she tears or cuts into pieces for her collage work. Stencils, layering techniques, and the use of non-traditional mark-making objects (combs, Lego, fork, etc.) are important to her creative process.

Jane graduated from the University Of Western Ontario with her Bachelor Of Fine Arts degree and later attended George Brown College studying Commercial Art. She established a 30 year career as a graphic designer and her portraiture became part-time. Jane retired from the design industry in 2017.

Currently, Jane is a full-time artist living in Belmont, Ontario with her husband and daughter. She is a member of the Port Stanley Artist's Guild, the St. Thomas Art Guild, the Federation Of Canadian Artists, and the Colour And Form Society. Jane shows her work in galleries across Canada and has work in private art collections throughout Ontario and the United States. To view samples of her art work and for more information, you can find her on FaceBook and Instagram or visit her website at www.janeatkinson.ca
