Jane is a Normanton woman. During the last 35 years she has moved around Queensland with her husband who was a stockman’s cook and they eventually settled in a little town called Lawnton.
Jane was introduced to painting about 10 years ago by Lloyd Hornsby. Lloyd has encouraged Jane to express her identity and to be proud of who she is. Today she works a lot with school children and is in high demand by several schools in the Moreton Bay region where she teaches beading and storytelling. While storytelling she speaks in her own language and interprets it back to the children in English. Jane is very popular with the school children and has started her own little business within community.
