Jane BEECROFT

Jane has been exhibiting extensively around Cornwall since 1970, when she began showing with the Cornwall Crafts Association in Helston. With the Taking Space group of artists she has shown for many years in their annual shows in Penzance, St Ives, Truro, Falmouth, etc. wherever the exhibition schedule took them.

In December, 1996, she finished lecturing at Falmouth College of Art in order to devote more time to her own creative development. Since that time her paintings have been exhibited regularly in festival shows, restaurants, hotels and markets. In 2003 she was the resident artist at the Mount Haven Hotel & Restaurant in Marazion where she had exhibited solo previously. She has also shown her work at the Affordable Art Fair in London (2001).  Three paintings were selected to be hung at the Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) at Truro. 

Her latest work explores a variety of techniques which strive to infuse her paintings with an element of the mystical.
