Jane Dell was born in New York City and began her study of fine art at the high school of Music and Art, and continued at the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts and holds a BFA from Pratt Institute. She has been included in many group and solo exhibitions.
Her current work focuses on painting, collage and mixed media that is an expressionistic and dreamlike journey of images inspired by the continuing damage and threat to our environment by humans. The series fuses an expressive style with various paint mediums and photo/collage elements. The primary subject is animals; endangered, or extinct, fantastical human forms, and contemporary debris that exist within a landscape of imagined chaos. Very often the scene is constructed from the subjects’ point of view, as if the animals and fantastical forms are telling the story.
