About the Artist
Jane Meyler is an artist native of Dublin. Her main interests are in oil painting, pastel painting and drawing. She focusses on painting en plein air and on developing her skill as a pastel artist. Jane is a self taught artist who works from her studio which overlooks Rosslare Bay. Here the sea, the beach and the high skies provide her with constant inspiration. She combines this inspiration with a need to draw and sketch as the foundation of all her work. Whether she is sketching ideas for new paintings of the beach or out on the cliff in a wrong wind with canvas and brushes, Jane just has to be making art. “…before I open my eyes in the morning until I fall asleep at night, I hear the ever changing rush, the ebb and flow, of the tides. The full moon with it’s path of flickering light stretching towards the strand. The breaking dawn when the sun peeps over the horizon and it’s light floods through my front window. Often the best part of the day vanishes before I’ve time to open the front door but there, to greet me always, nature’s inspiration….everyday the same scene yet always in a different light. I count my blessings.” Her work is in collections throughout Ireland and in London, Scotland and the USA.
