Jane is also a marathon runner. “Marathon running has helped me in my pursuit of achieving success in painting. Twenty six miles is covered in single steps in order to achieve the goal of finishing. I have applied that work ethic to my painting, making small steps until I reach my goals in each piece. Running has taught me patience and persistence, which you need in order to be a successful artist.”

She received her third award from the Pastel Society of America for their annual Juried Show in October 2009, becoming a Master Pastel Artist.
