Jane Porter

artist bio

Jane Porter was born in Aberdeen Scotland and came from a creative family background, but one where most of the creativity was directed toward crafts and practical uses.  Her grandmother though, did nurture her artistic interest and introduced her to oil painting from postcards at an early age.


Porter did not paint for twenty years after her parents divorced, and traveled extensively, absorbing an appreciation for varied landscapes, architecture and people.


After studying psychology, sociology and art, she finally focused on the latter and obtained a BA with honors in Fine Art, curated an exhibit of top contemporary Scottish artists, and has participated in numerous galleries, shows, and design projects.
