Jane Denman lives in West Sussex by the sea. She has been working as a full time artist since 1999 and draws and paints almost daily. Denman’s main theme is painting and drawing people in action and this evolved into a dance project. She is inspired by contemporary fashion as well as dance, sometimes this comes through in the figures, avoiding inner clichés that are associated with dance. Denman’s figures are strong, full of movement and to tell a moment in time. The artist loves music videos and takes inspiration from short dance films, with their beautiful sets and lighting, they give her an emotional feeling that she then translates through colour. Denman achieves high impact with line and colour and once she completes a drawing that she likes she then will paint quickly just to see how it looks on a larger scale.
