Jane Crisp ArtistJane Crisp is a much admired painter who's delicate and intricate portraits never fail to captivate. We are thrilled to bring you a range of her prints as blockmounts, framed works, decals and miniatures. "Beauty and realness of the natural world is what captivates me. I do not paint real scenes or situations as a photographic camera would capture, although I attempt to paint reality. Much of my work is intuitive, opening with a vision often upon a waking moment, followed by a desperate scribble into a sketchbook. I liken my paintings to children, the bond formed during the process of creation is strong, and they feel like loved ones when I send them out into the world. Amplifying the compassion and warmth of these heart-filled creatures, who live in the moment, I verge into portraiture. Placing Tui and Piwakawaka upon pedestals, I admire their wisdom and integrity through stories and legends which have been told. I introduce objects of sentimental value to reflect their importance in an attempt to bring awareness of their fragile existence, an ongoing essence throughout my work." - Jane Crisp
