In one of my studios

Hi I’m Jane. I’m based in Worcestershire and in the Alicante Province of Spain. I live with my husband Paul and our little Shih Tzu Gem.

I’ve been an artist all my life. I grew up in the era where making art was all about experimentation. It was great fun. I became an Art and Textiles secondary school teacher in Birmingham. I loved inspiring others for twenty six years to work to their personal best and to believe in themselves.

Over the years I was lucky enough to be a breeder, exhibitor and judge of St Bernard dogs giving me the knowledge and skills to portray this wonderful breed on canvas. The only hands on contact that I have now is judging St Bernards at Championship level under my Brenidge affix and former name, Jane Brennan. It was a great honour and privilege to have being invited to judge Crufts in 2022.

Working from a very clear photograph in my studio

I absolutely love working from a clear photograph, capturing the spirit of someone’s pet and bringing it to life in a painting. I work mainly in acrylic paints because they dry so quickly. It’s also such an adaptable medium which can mirror the qualities of watercolours and oils, which I also love working with.

If you are interested in commissioning a pet portrait, take a look at the style of my paintings in The Pet Portrait Gallery. Then contact me so that we can discuss the various options available.


Working in my studio with a little help from my friend

Painting brings me great joy, hope & gratitude especially in this new world that we now find ourselves in. I simply love moving paint around the canvas and adding layers of colours on top of each other. I love exploring colour making, patterns, contrasts and tones to capture a moment in time or the essence of spirit.

I so enjoy painting intuitively. It’s like unravelling layers of spiritual emotions. My clients find that they are drawn towards a particular painting. It holds a special significant energy for them. Every picture tells a personal story.

I produce paintings in a variety of sizes. They are all so unique and I am pleased to say that I cannot replicate them. If you are interested in my style of work to enhance your home or as a special gift you may like to commission a particular colour scheme. Do contact me to discuss this further.

Peace & Tranquility £2250 Actual Size A1

This is my favourite so far. Definitely a strong influence here by The Impressionist Movement, Monet in particular. I love mixing beautiful, harmonious colours from a limited palette and then adding a touch of sparkle.
