Jane Kell is a British painter currently based in London, after relocating back to the UK from Washington DC.
Jane studied a BA in History and Theory of Art at Essex University. She worked for many years in PR, including roles such as Publicity Director of Phaidon Press and Head of Press at the National Gallery in London. Jane pursued her artistic career in 2010 painting still life and landscapes inspired by British painters like William Nicholson and Mary Fedden, where colour and light were the focus.
From 2014 Jane has taught oil painting classes in West London, enjoying the contact with students and the insight different students give her. In 2017 she completed a residency in rural France painting predominantly plein air. This allowed her to deepen her connection with the landscape in a more immersive way.
