Jane Talcott studied painting at the Art Students League of New York. She works from direct observation of her subject driven by an emotional response to color. Rooted by a childhood spent exploring nature outdoors, she finds inspiration in open spaces near home in Brooklyn, New York. Jane was born in Hartford, CT in 1959 into a family of artists. After graduation from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in textile design she moved to New York and began painting while working as a woven textile designer. She has exhibited in galleries throughout the Northeast including the Allen Sheppard Gallery, Microcosm, Synchronicity Fine Arts, the Gowanus Arts Exchange, and the Flat Iron Gallery. In 2003, she received the Synchronicity Fine Arts 14th Annual Jury Award. Her work is included in private collections throughout the US.
