Elle? What happened to Jane? And who is Eleanor? Let me explain.
I am now living in New Zealand. Covid turned a long-planned sabbatical into a permanent move. Although I cannot WAIT to visit Europe again when the masks are off. (Yes, I know. I'm very fortunate and grateful to my wonderful family and friends for coping with this news.) In New Zealand, I simply cannot use Jane. There's the excitement of people who think I'm the film director, then obvious disappointment that I'm just me. So, at last (yes, grandmother), I am using my legal first name. And I'm seeking a new studio with a bed in the corner.
This website has become my new way to share this life and my art. Posting on Facebook will lose me more locked-down friends than it will win me.
So welcome! I'm hoping you're about to see something very new emerging.
