Jane Evershed was born in the UK, grew up in South Africa and came to live in the US in Minneapolis in 1984. In that same year she won the Minneapolis Metro Transit bus design award after which she launched a career marketing journals, books, large prints and notecards of her art which she marketed across the US and in many other countries.
During this time she spoke at many universities and colleges, sharing her art and poetry, winning awards and various commissions. In 1994 Harper Collins published a book of her art and Poetry. In 2000 Jane transformed her home into a gallery and fundraising venue in Kenwood Minneapolis.
In 2006 Jane went to live in the woods of Wisconsin for 7 years to gather her thoughts and reinvent her life as an artist, where she continued to paint and evolve her style without the constraints of everyday life.
Upon her return to Minnesota Jane began her Remembering the Divine Feminine series as a natural evolution from her earlier Power of Woman and other series that spoke to environmental degradation.
Jane’s work is ultimately inspired by nature and our relationship to it. She observes the genius of the natural world and allows it to determine lines of life on the canvas that often evolve into otherworldly dimensions and states of consciousness not yet arrived at by our slow evolution. Examples of these would be LEAVING TIME, STEPS TO HIGHER DIMENSIONS and CHANTING DESTINY, to name a few of her latest works.
Jane Evershed: Statement:
Art has always been to show the higher self striving for the zenith aesthetic. What happened to that high notion? Did art become reduced to a means of laundering money perhaps? Did art fall martyr to art itself in the age of the digital gods? Oil painting, like stained glass windows, are as sure a part of life as growing a garden. These skills must not be lost to humankind. Artificial Intelligence is poised right now to take over the role of artists. (Video here)
Jane recently published her art teaching book SPLAT!
Jane Evershed has been painting in oils for over forty years. Her first endeavor out of high school was to teach children’s art classes. She has taught art in South Africa, the USA and Indonesia. She believes that art being an outstanding feature of highly evolved civilizations warrants as many people as possible to learn and teach creativity toward the higher purpose of humanity’s positive evolution. She teaches art with a focus and goal of creating from soul. Internal creativity in children must be nurtured from a young age as it is being threatened by too much external techno-interference.
Jane began painting and distributing reproductions and originals of her work nationally in the United States for twenty five years with great success.
After being invited by Michael Tellinger to Ubuntu headquarters in South Africa to create huge murals depicting the ancient sites of Adam’s Calendar, and trips to Bali to absorb the wisdom of the NewEarth presenters at two World Health Summits Jane focused on the dire state of art in the world today and remedies for art health. The summits in Bali hosted by Sacha Stone, founder of NewEarth Project inspired her to create SPLAT! which teaches the art basics in ten steps. Jane now sits on the NewEarth University* faculty of the Living Arts. *NEU synergizes ancient wisdom with full-spectrum breakthrough technologies and innovations from leading experts in their field – visionaries and pioneers sharing an array of talent and gifts, so that together we manifest a peaceful New Earth. Jane is also a writer for NewEarthorizon.
