Artist Bio - Jane Batley Bowles

Portraiture has always fascinated me and in my current practice, I endeavour to process this. I work in various mediums. Pencil, Pastels, Charcoal, Lino Cuts, Oil on Canvas/Canvas paper, Patina, Graphite, sculpting in Clay, then making a cast of the original in Plaster.

Jane has studied at Adelaide Central School of Art, when it was based at Norwood, and Bapea Art School, Bowden. Jane obtained an Advanced Diploma of Arts in Professional Writing. Jane was previously heavily involved with Playground Drama Group, a hub of artists, writing, developing and performing plays together. Jane has had an interest in drama, hence writing Radio Drama Plays and wrote, produced, and directed a pilot radio script ‘Obsession’ by Radio Adelaide Station 96.1.
