Jane is a local artist who creates colourful textile art from Harris Tweed and wool yarn. By making clever use of the patterns and textures within this very special fabric, which is still hand-woven in the Outer Hebrides, Jane is able to represent familiar local landscapes in a unique and unusual way.
Jane gradually builds each piece of work using hand held barbed needles, which are repeatedly pushed through a collage made from layers of tweed and yarn until the microscopic woollen fibres fuse into a solid felted piece.
Jane has won the honour of official poster artist for the 2013 Alnmouth Art Festival. Her beautiful textile design of Lovaine Terrace with its coloured houses will appear on all the publicity materials being produced to advertise and promote the event to be held in June
