Curriculum Vitae

Jane Wilson is both an artist and a magpie having amassed a rather large collection of old maps, music manuscripts, vintage books and other interesting paper ephemera. These are the source material for her art; the lyrics, the book pages and the maps as both her painting ground and her inspiration. The subject matter always relates in some way to the vintage piece Wilson has chosen to paint on. The items from her collection that she chooses to repurpose as artworks are generally damaged and disintegrating; and so Wilson gives otherwise unloved, old pieces of printed history a new lease of life and creating unique, contemporary works of art.
