I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, graduating from Rhodes University with a BA degree in Fine Art (Painting) in 1990. In 1995, we moved to England, and after 16 years as a working mother, I have resumed painting full-time.  
Jane Atherfold - Weybridge Surrey Artist at Work 
Artist At Work
I paint a wide range of subjects, enjoying landscapes the most. I draw inspiration from nature and am especially interested in the influence of light. Capturing mood and atmosphere through establishing a sense of place, use of tone and colour are elements intrinsic to painting and what I strive to achieve in my work.
I work primarily in oils on canvas, although I enjoy working in other mediums as well. The English Romantic painters, Constable and Turner as well as the French Impressionists, Monet and Pissarro, are important influences in my work.
I am currently working on a series of abstracts; French landscapes and rural villages in the Dordogne region; South African landscapes as well as “London by Night”, a series of black and white paintings based on the evocative photos of London in the early 1900s, taken by Francis Sandwith.
I welcome commissions and would be delighted to discuss the details of your requirements.
All of the paintings on my website are original works. Some of my work is reproduced in the form of giclée prints which can be obtained by contacting me by phone or email.
