Portfolio for Jane Dunn - Commissionaportrait

Before taking up art I rode and trained horses professionally and rode in steeplechases and combined events.Then I became a dress designer and had my own lable selling to Harrods etc.But I have always painted and finally nothing would do but retrain as a classical artist .My formal training was at Chelsae Art Shool, Simi Studio Florence and City and Guilds London. But I think my most valuable lessons were either in the saddle or mucking out or planting my garden . I now travel all over the place to look for gardens and return to France each year on painting trips.

Artist's Statement   Gardening is very like painting. It is the magical world of someone so i would like to capture that and preserve it for the long winter evenings.

Statement      It is lovely to visit the garden and paint it at its best but i realise that with the weather and late or early flowerings this is not always possible so i am very happy to work with photos taken with lots of help from me , if you are not a very confident photographer, till I get what is needed . Possibly a wee bit of arrangement of plants that weren't as abundant as hoped for or not as good as last year.
