About Jane Glue


Jane and her twin sister Judith were born in Orkney in 1958. 

Both twins were keen artist's from an early age. In 1976-77 Jane studied at Grays school of Art, Aberdeen. She then completed her studies later attending Harrow College of art in London from 1982-85 graduating in book Illustration. 

Jane returned home to Orkney and opened her own gallery initially as part of her twin sister Judith's shop, opposite St Magnus Cathedral and moving to 39 Albert Street in Kirkwall. Later purchasing an old smithy in Finstown which was renovated into a gallery and studio.

In 2015 she moved to her studio space at the Creative Hub at the back of Ortak jewellery in Hatston, where she still works. This last period has also marked a shift in her work from mainly painting with watercolours to more experimentation with mixed media and 'found' objects. Her focus is still on the Orkney landscape along with birds and flora, although in a more experimental and abstract style. In 2020 she launched her new website www.janeglue.com which celebrates 35yrs of art work and also sells limited edition prints, original work and other products produced from her own artwork.
