Jane completed her art school career with a post graduate course in Printmaking at the Slade School of Art, and began teaching part time and exhibiting prints and drawings at several London galleries and European Art Fairs.

Jane says, "The course will emphasise the importance of first-hand information, using sketching techniques to collect subject material and compositional ideas, colour notes and the effects of light. We’ll take photographs too. At Tigh na Breac, tuition will be given on how to best develop your sketchbook and photographic notes through drawing, and painting, either watercolour or acrylics. We usually spend the first day painting the beautiful views from the house, and your week of painting develops from there. Anyone who wishes to develop their paintings ‘en plein air’ will be accommodated and encouraged, subject to the weather of course! The ever-changing view of the loch provides constant inspiration for the week’s activities"
