Drawing on Steel with Fire—Jayne using a plasma cutter as her paint brush drawing on sheet steel.I have recently become intrigued by drawing on steel with fire.The gestural line and excitement of making marks with fire has become extremely exciting and intriguing to me.These drawings seem to be moving towards a sculptural form incorporating glass as well.I do not know where I will end up but the process is extreme.

Extensive travel in Europe,particularly the six month Sabbatical in France,opened many avenues for her work. Through the tutelage of her friend and mentor Robert Willson,she was afforded the opportunity to blow glass at the A.R.S.Murano glass factories in Venice,Italy,during 1996 and 1997. An enriching experience to say the least.
Her works can be found in many private and permanent collections throughout the States,Canada,Cayman Islands and France. She is represented by various galleries and is listed in many
Who´s Whopublications along with a Charter Member of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Jayne was nominated
Texas Artist of the Yearfor 2008-2009 and 2009-2010.
Her vehicle of expression can be found in either paint or hot glass. Light and color,along with a return to nature,for the expression of her sensibilities,are her major concerns.
