Bio: Jane holds an MFA from the University of Southern Illinois and has worked as a VSAI Teaching Artist since 1994. She has been the Director of Arts and Education at Patchwork Central since 1995. Jane was named Art Educator of the Year for Southeastern Indiana in 2001.
Philosophy: I believe art has the ability to cross boundaries and barriers between people of all abilities and backgrounds. In art we have opportunities to explore ideas, take risks, and work through problems. It is my privilege to open new doors that allow people to playfully create and maybe even learn something new about themselves.
