Jane Ericksen is primarily a figurative painter who also works in drawing and photography.
Her goal is to convey a mood or emotion of the subjects, which connects with the viewer sometimes enabling reflection of a past experience. The piece may connect with a past childhood memory, the intense gaze of a subject may move the viewer to think of a personal relationship, the use of space and perspective may invite the viewer to study the painting further.
She primarily works in oils with use of other media as she reflects on the relevant subject and mood she is wanting to convey. Jane has held two exhibitions in Australia and one in Canada with her next exhibition is scheduled for April 2017.
