A Day In The Life Of Jane Burrows

Jane Burrows is a contemporary painter and printmaker, living and working in Hove. Her work is built around observational drawing, creating monotypes from small-scale graphite sketches. Life drawing is central to Burrows’s work, having herself been both muse and master in the life drawing studio. Here, we spend a day in the life of Jane Burrows, from early starts to drawing inspiration from the human figure. 

MY ALARM GOES OFF…

I am a morning person, and rise and shine before 7.30am every day. After a granola, yoghurt and fruit breakfast I go out for my daily double espresso.  Living and working alone means meeting my café friends every morning is essential.  I then go for a brisk walk on Hampstead Heath which I am lucky to have at the end of my road.  Although I love living in London I would not want to be far away from green space and nature!

 

HOW I STARTED LIFE AS AN ARTIST…

I only enjoyed Art and French at school and they are still very important parts of my life.  I owned a small flat and studio in France for several years and had a couple of solo exhibitions there.

 

MY TYPICAL DAY…

After my walk I start working in my studio only stopping late afternoon at a convenient time during my printmaking process.

 

When not in lockdown I go to a life drawing group every week where all the inspiration for my prints comes from.

 

MY MOST MEMORABLE ARTISTIC MOMENT…

I was very excited when I was accepted to exhibit at The Other Art Fair in October and I am working at the moment towards hopefully exhibiting there again.  I really enjoyed talking about my work, hearing people’s comments and making them smile!  

 

THE WORST PART OF BEING AN ARTIST…

It is difficult when I am between projects and stuck for inspiration but it does not last for long.  I am very lucky that I am able to spend my life doing what I love - it goes with me wherever I go!
