Jane Canfield was born in New Zealand (Christchurch) in 1967 and grew up in an artistic family, with her father, Tony Canfield a collected artist, inventor, motor mechanic and designer. Every weekend they would go camping and her Dad would be sketching and painting. This love of working in nature has followed her to this day… and her love of classic cars…
Jane was accepted at an early age to Graphic Design College (Randwick TAFE, Sydney 1984) and spent 20 years working in the industry, but always drew and painted, encouraged by family. She first came to notice for her strong lino cut prints but it was not until her Dad passed away in 2004 that she became a full time artist.
She is also a WIRES volunteer (particularly interested in Flying Foxes and Bats) and is one of the founding volunteer directors on the Katoomba & Upper Blue Mountains Bendigo Community Bank Branch which returns thousands of dollars every year to not-for-profit and community groups in the region.
