Jane Chesnut was born in Nebraska. Throughtout her early childhood she was always drawing and painting. Jane's parents supported her enthusiasm for art and her skills grew. She studied at the University Of Nebraska majoring in art. With her love of art, nature and flowers she was drawn to the floral industry and became a skillful floral designer. She received many floral art awards throughout her 40 years of experience in the floral industry. Jane also expanded her artistic talents into designing jewelry, using vintage buttons and vintage costume jewelry.
Her love and desire for drawing and painting has brought her full circle. Once again she is surrounded by canvas, paint, and brushes. She feels blessed to be able to pick up the chapter she started so many years ago. Her technique is diverse and nonrestrictive. The images she creates are often spurred by music, people and nature. She is a true art lover and thrives on the creative process especially accidental surprises. The results are an exciting range of artwork in the form of nature inspired paintings, abstract, and mixed media paintings.
I believe art is all around us. I never know when something will inspire me because I feel inspiration is everywhere. I love to expand on ideas and experiment with new techniques. Most of my artwork medium is acrylic on stretched canvas. The style is varied, from abstract, mixed media, and sometimes have a whimsical playful feel. Some of the paintings have a slight texture added to the base of the canvas. The result is a beautiful feeling of depth. I love to create art, it fills my heart and encourages me to plunge into new creative adventures. I love life and I'm living it to the fullest.
