Jane Cruickshank

Jane Cruikshank is one of the most modern artists working on canvas in Scotland today, taking the medium of oil paint and making it speak in a way that is both contemporary and traditional. Whether a quiet, intimate self-portrait or a poignant still-life, Jane's pieces combine classical lighting techniques, almost reminiscent of the Old Masters, with a thoroughly modern, photographic looking brushwork. The effect is at once precise but also beautifully enigmatic. Jane graduated in 1998 from Grays School of Art, Aberdeen and exhibits throughout Scotland.
