Connecticut artist Jane Collins paints in a fluid, painterly style.  Collins’ bright paintings in oil and watercolor reflect her love of all things rural: woodlands, gardens, farms, flowers and birds. 

At the UCONN School of Fine Arts Collins studied photography, drawing, design, watercolor, and oil painting.  Subsequent oil painting workshops with working artists David Lussier and Foster Caddell have further refined her skills and influenced her style.

Collins’ work can be found in numerous homes and buisness venues.  Ten of her barn paintings are in the permanent collection of Eastern Connecticut State University, in Willimantic, Connecticut.

Collins’ work is frequently available at the Lyme Art Association Gallery in Old Lyme, Connecticut. 

Her studio is open by appointment: (860-455-6251)

Artist Statement:
In my rustic studio in rural Northeastern Connecticut, I paint in oil and watercolor. I like to work in oil on canvas for my landscapes, which may be executed on site or in the studio from photographic reference materials.

Flowers from my own gardens are another source of inspiration, and for these I mainly work in watercolor and ink. I have many watercolor paintings available at my studio, some framed and some matted and ready for framing. Also available are framed or matted prints of some of my paintings.

When visiting my studio you will have a first hand look at my painting process.
