Jane Rafter

Jane's Nottingham paintings capture the movement, life and energy of this vibrant city, featuring the iconic Market square, along with our old friends 'The Lions' and the visiting attraction 'The Nottingham Eye'. They are painted using oil on canvas and completed quickly within 2 to 6 hours, while the paint is still wet, allowing for blending and smudging. Once the oil paint is touch dry, the final details are added.

"Using reference photos and video clips, plus my own memories and imagination, I create a painting that reflects my own style and point of view. I leave a lot of the detail out, which allows the viewer to interpret the painting in their own way, engaging them in the creative process".

Jane Rafter graduated from De Montfort University in Leicester with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She worked in the design industry for 14 years.

Since 2007 she has been painting full time, producing private commissions and selling work through commercial galleries.
