Jane Starr Weils grew up in New Hampshire, USA, and as a child she was always running off to the enchantment of the woods. There she explored the magical world of nature and sought out those illusive things that always seemed to be just out of the corner of the eye. Her artwork reflects this love and wonder of nature as well as being inspired by magick, myths, legends, faerie lore and, of course, knights in shining armor.
She is fascinated with the color of light and the way it moves and wraps around all things. This is reflected in every painting as she tries to capture it with a palette of mixed mediums.
You will quite often find Celtic Knot work designs and other rich patterns woven into her paintings along with symbolism and bits of whimsical surprises.
Jane lived out west for many years residing in Jerome, Arizona (USA) and the enchanting Silver City in New Mexico. She has now made her nest in picturesque upstate New York and lives in a quaint cottage-sized farmhouse by a beautiful river and surrounded by woods and mountains.
She is an avid gardener, growing everything from fruit trees to medicinal herbs. She has a pottery studio in which she sculpts in porcelain and there is also a pigeon coup with a number of colorful birds. She is usually accompanied by her beloved kittie cats.
Jane’s work can be found in publications, on book and CD covers and is also available on a wide variety of licensed products.
