Featured Artist - Jane Barclay

An artist born in Essex, England, I attained my degree in Constructed Textiles at Middlesex University, London.

Over the years I have exhibited my work in London, Paris, Holland and Luxembourg in galleries and on catwalks.

I have also taught at Middlesex University and various art and textile courses at Loughton and Harlow Colleges in Essex before leaving the UK in 1997 to come to Luxembourg.

Returning to my artwork after bringing up my family, my paintings often reflect my interest in textiles and my love of colour and texture.

I have since produced a range of paintings of local Luxembourg scenes and have more recently moved into developing a mixed media rusting technique using 24 karat gold leaf to produce a collection of abstract work.
