Jane Gray Artist

Jane Gray

Jane has been painting professionally since 1983. During this time she furthered her art education at The Slade University, London, where one of her tutors was the renowned Sir Terry Frost. It was here she really understood just how difficult it is to paint in the abstracted form, which she still per-sues today both on canvas and ceramic forms. 1992 saw Jane teaching all art classes at Hereworth School, Havelock North for the next 8 years, and also took private lessons for children and adults from her home. This was followed up by opening Wine Country Gallery in Havelock North, known for supporting up and coming artists and the wider Art Community.
