Jane Patterson—Australian Watercolours
 

Meet the Artist

I paint in watercolour, mainly landscapes of the Bathurst region & further afield in New South Wales. I also paint closeups of birds and plant life.

I remember painting as a child, first in India, then in Scotland - it was something that our family did on picnics. Now, much older and on a different continent, painting, specially in the fresh air, still brings me great joy.

These days, my work has reached many places worldwide in original form and as greeting cards.

I exhibit regularly in Exhibitions in the Central West and my work is also available at Cobweb in Oberon and Dimension Framing in Bathurst… and from my home/studio  by appointment or during the Bathurst Arts Trail (on the first full weekend each month).
