Jane and her twin sister Judith were born in Orkney in 1958. Their parents Donald and Ella Glue met in Orkney during WW2 while Donald was serving on HMS Rodney which was based in Scapa flow.
Jane and Judith both had a keen interest in art from an early age. In 1976 Jane attended Grays school of Art, Aberdeen, later attending Harrow school of art, Middlesex, graduating in Illustration in 1985. She returned to her home in Orkney, opening her own business in 1987, Shorelines Gallery at the rear of her sister Judith's shop in Broad st, opposite St Magnus cathedral in Kirkwall. Jane spent ten years there, moving to her own premises at 39 Albert st, Kirkwall for a further ten years, where there was more space to display her original work.
A long term dream had been to own her own property and in 2000 she bought an almost derelict old smithy in the village of Finstown. Gradually the property was developed into a large gallery and studio with a self catering house attached to the sea end. In 2005 the new Shorelines Gallery opened and Jane spent ten happy years there.
In 2015 after 30 yrs of painting Jane decided to sell the gallery and moved into new studio space at The Creative Hub, Hatston in Kirkwall. This enabled her to have more time to paint and develop her career further.
This website was launched in 2020 and consists of over 35yrs of artwork, all available as limited edition prints on paper and canvas, cards and other products produced from her artwork. Jane also has a selection of original artwork for sale on her site. For many years Jane specialized in the medium of watercolours but more recently has introduced other mediums such as acrylics, inks and collage. She also loves to wander the local beaches and find treasures to add into her paintings!
