Jane Maxwell

"Jane Maxwell is a collage artist based in Boston, MA. Her current work largely focuses on women, body image and the feminine ideal. Jane's collages are deeply layered works, combining color, texture and text that surround and become the female figure.

After graduating from Middlebury College in 1986 as a literature major, Jane worked in public relations for 10 years, before turning her full attention to art. At that time she took her interest in collage and a natural affinity for found papers and objects, and delved into a range of mixed media classes at the DeCordova Museum School (Lincoln, MA) and The Museum School (Boston, MA). She soon began to show her work locally.

Today, Jane's work is shown in New York City, San Francisco, Paris and in the South of France. Her work has been purchased by collectors throughout the world.

Jane has been a guest lecturer at Wellesley College, Stonehill College and The New England Art Institute, on the topic of body image and art. Her work has been the focus of numerous newspaper and magazine articles and has been featured in many art books, including Collage for the Soul and Mixed Media Collage.

Jane lives in Newton, MA with her husband and three children."(Jane Maxwell)
