Jane Braithwaite ASEA


Jane lives in the Pennine village of Delph, north of Manchester, where she was born and grew up. Her love for drawing and painting horses began at an early age, but only recently, after a break of 40 years, did she start to paint again.

Although Jane completed the Foundation course at Manchester College of Art in the early ’70s, she went on to lead a busy life as a Primary School teacher for 23 years and later, she ran her own saddlery and country clothing business for 15 years. Throughout this time Jane also competed in eventing and dressage with her own horses. Now, with the competition years over, and the horses gone, Jane has returned to painting.

Jane has exhibited locally and nationally since 2014 and has won awards for her work (Patchings Open Art Competition). She enjoys the challenge of portraiture and painting figures in the context of cityscapes however, painting horses in a variety of situations such as racing, polo and eventing is where her heart truly lies.

She uses oils and sometimes charcoal to explore her interest in light, form, space and movement. Her aim is to catch that elusive fleeting moment which tells a story, without sentimentality.
