When Your Art Has Something to Say

Our projects and art have minds of their own. I’m sure you’ve had that experience. Right now I’m preparing for our island’s biggest festival of the year, creating art and finishing a book (the long awaited Paloma and Wings in soft- and hardcover!).

Anyway, I’m definitely feeling like my art projects are clamoring for time, love, attention. And I want to give it to them! I feel like I’m being hustled and bustled by a flock of hungry hens ….

In any case, enjoy the latest FoxTales. And please share a story or two about how your projects have come to life!

Ready, Set–Art!

It’s so much fun to prepare for my art show, opening on Friday. Here’s a piece I’ll have finished by then:

Starlit Dream - art by Jane Valencia

I have a lot of ideas I’m very excited about for 2015–including the debut of a comic on this blog! Stay tuned!

Wishing you many blessings, many inspirations, and much real magic ~

January Art Show! Winter Tales

So delighted to be presenting my art once more at Vashon Intuitive Arts. Five of my pieces were included in the Day Of The Dead show in October. I’m honored that the good folks of VIA liked my work so much that they invited me to do a whole show of my own!

Here are the details:

Enter an enchanted realm in this showing of reflective and magical art in watercolor and colored pencil drawings and fanciful photographs. Show exhibits throughout the month.

An artist who is also a harper, storyteller, and nature teacher, Jane  draws upon her love of imagination, music, folklore, and the natural world in her creative expressions. She has authored a children’s fantasy novel set on an island very much like Vashon, and has written and illustrated a children’s herbal comic that ran for two years in the acclaimed herbal journal, Plant Healer Magazine.
