My name is Jane Vallings and I live in South Oxfordshire with my husband, two children, dog and chickens.
Jane Vallings Illustration is the realisation of a life-long ambition; from drawing my own greetings cards as a child, to the friends at school asking me to draw little characters on their rough books! My interest in art took a different angle in terms of my study and career – which focussed more heavily on the history of art.
The desire for creating my own illustration company was put on the back burner for a while, but re-ignited when I started to see the wonderful illustrations in the books that I read to my
children and how simple pictures fire the imagination.
My chosen medium is pen and wash, simply because I like it. So I have seized the moment and put pen and brush to paper – I hope you like them!
