About Jane Robinson
"I always wanted to be a spontaneous composer." Charlie Mingus, jazz musician
My current work is inspired by the jazz music of early pioneers such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Charlie Mingus, Sonny Clarke and dozens of others. The movement, rhythm, instruments and "colour" of the music opens a portal to an unexplored world - through the looking glass. My work is also influenced by the abstract movement of the fifties, by artists such as Willima de Kooning, Franz Kline and the early work of Renata Bernal. The synchroncity of the time period of the early jazz movement along with modern abstract movement is a powerful inspiration in my work.
"Don't play what's there, play whats not there." Miles Davis, jazz musician
Original modern art that makes a statement…without taking out a second mortgage? The truth? You don’t need to visit a high-priced, elite gallery to find the perfect piece of art for your home or business.
I get that you are a busy professional with a demanding career, with a growing family or maybe a new empty nest, college tuition, vacations scheduled and investment programs that you are financing. I also know that your home is your haven. A place where at the end of the day you put your feet up, grab a glass of wine and relax. You want this space to speak to your personal aesthetics and don’t want the typical home art décor that most designers suggest or provide.
You want your art to be as unique as you and your home are but… you don’t want to spend thousands for that statement art piece.
This is where I come in. I am Jane Robinson and my paintings are original AND affordable. By purchasing directly from my studio you avoid the 50% gallery commission. I believe that every person should be able to create interiors that luxurious yet within your means. Your home’s artwork is the signature of your style aesthetic.
My work has been sold globally, won awards and can be found in hundreds of private homes, corporations, businesses, hotels and institutions of higher learning. My style works well in Classic Contemporary to French Modern. My own retreat is a log home with modern, eclectic furnishings and design.
I believe that you should surround yourself with items you love and not be restrained by a specific design style. I also believe that you can achieve this without breaking the bank. For these reasons I have created work that makes a statement AND you won’t need to sell your first-born child.
I get it, that sometimes buying artwork online can feel risky so I offer a no-risk guarantee. Try any piece in your home for one week and if it doesn’t work the way you envisioned it, return it for a full refund… no questions asked.
Furthermore, please note that all my paintings are signed on the back of the canvas so you can hang them vertically, horizontally or even turn it upside down. You decide how it looks best in your space.
