Drawing is the basic unit of all visual art. Whether done as an end in itself or as a scribble on the back of a napkin that culminates in a video installation it is to visual art what scales are to music.
The daily practice that enhances our skills, stimulates our imagination and pushes how we think about our work is crucial, and between us artists, so damn much fun!
Our dogs are often our best models. They want to be wherever we are, they can hold a sleeping pose for hours, they don’t object to studio dust, and they ask nothing in return. They say your art should be your passion so draw what you love: draw your dog!
Jane has been drawing her dogs for years and her current favorite model is Hattie, a mini wirehaired dachshund.
Originally from Winnipeg, Jane Everett and did her Fine Arts degree at Queen’s University. Whatever the particular subject her practice is essentially a study of light as it elucidates or obscures form. Her work has been exhibited across the country in private and public galleries, most recently at the Kelowna Art Gallery in the Drawing from Life exhibition, in Winnipeg at The Buhler Gallery and in Edmonton at Bugera Matheson Gallery. Everett is represented in Kelowna by Arte funktional, in Edmonton by Bugera Matheson and in Toronto by Ingram Gallery.
