Jane's art career from over 35yrs
Today I work mainly from my studio and visiting all the locations that still inspire me. I never get tired of looking and taking inspiration from my home and discovering new ways of interpreting what I see. I still paint with watercolours, mixing them with collage and other mixed media. These last few years I have been obsessed with birds in all forms and set amongst different landscapes of sea and sky. I still love the colours and light of my home, Orkney.

Dr John Rae the Orkney explorer

I’ve always known about John Rae, there is a memorial in St Magnus Cathedral which shows the explorer lying down, his gun by his side, and I knew about Clestrain and that John Rae had lived there.

June is the month for wildflowers!

June is my favourite month in Orkney! The colours and smells of all the wildflowers are wonderful. In early June we have the celadines and marsh marigolds which appear out of our freshwater streams, all a few weeks later than down south and this year especially late as Orkney has been dry and cold.

A visit to the secret garden of Happy Valley is a must in early June also, just to see and feel the bluebells which grow below the trees that surround 'Edwin's' cottage.
