2021 Scottish Dance Paintings as Imagined by Jane Sharp (Tenth Edition)
DANCE AND ART COINCIDE.
Brought up in Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland, Jane studied drama and appeared in repertory theatre around the UK before marrying and moving to Tenafly, NJ. A mother of three, for 21 years she taught theatre at Dwight-Englewood School and worked as a Theatrical Artistic Director.
Now retired, one of Jane's joys is Scottish country dancing with friends and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic and expressing her love of Scotland and Scottish country dancing in paint.
"The process starts with a spontaneous thought, on hearing the name of a dance, followed by an exploration of the origin and figure formations. Then fact and fiction, reality and fantasy take shape in paint and a Scottish Dance Painting is imagined."
Jane creates beautiful calendars each year which incorporating her passion of dance and art. For more information on each of Jane's paintings, click here.
