Jane Galvin

Born: 28 0ctober 1949 in Huddersfield, Yorkshire. Qualified as Primary School Teacher in Art and Music from Sunderland College of Education. My involvement with the Arts has been constant and at various levels over the years. I studied with Michael James of the USA and Pauline Burbidge of the UK, both renowned textile artists. I have also attended workshops with water colourist, Paul Talbot-Greaves and have studied at the Slade School of Art in London on several occasions.
My career in teaching, which ended in 2009 after many years, involved the development of basic skills and techniques in drawing and painting for children. I created a scheme of work for non-specialist teachers to use in the classroom, enabling them to continue that development throughout the school from Years 3 through to 6.
Extending my influence further, I deliver presentations, demonstrations and workshops to a wider audience including Art Societies, throughout the region. I am an invited exhibitor at Holmfirth Artweek and also at Artsfest, Tunnel End, Marsden. I have been represented in the Millyard Gallery, Uppermill, the Revive Gallery in Heckmondwike and  I have work at Art of Gold, Horsforth and Bingley Art Gallery. Currently, I am exhibiting at theBritish Trade Craft Fair with ‘entirelyart’ and at Batley Art Gallery.
Commissions have been undertaken and completed in both textiles and painting.
There have been exhibitions throughout the UK and Ireland and I have work in private collections both here and abroad, in France, Switzerland, Singapore and the USA.
