Jane follows the sun, practising art and spiritual direction.  She crosses the equator around October and April each year, from Wiltshire in the UK, to Abel Tasman in New Zealand.  Shout out here to Climate Stewards

She is a third year student with the Ignation Spirituality Course in London, but entirely on Zoom. studying how to offer the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius. 

These are an ancient method of spiritual formation which offer an astonishingly contemporary and personal "life cleanse".  Jane offers these in-person, supported by Zoom, and hopes to tailor them to short retreats in everyday life.  

On the art front, in New Zealand, recent highlights have been: 

  • Finalist in the Tasman National Art Award, New Zealand  

  • Work shown at Purpose Gallery, Mapua, Tasman 

  • Gained membership of the Nelson Suter Art Society in August

In England, she has her own studio after studying at:

  • Dulwich Art Group & School

  • Heatherley School of Fine Art

  • Royal Drawing School, Shoreditch, London


Jane grew up in Whanganui, New Zealand, but left for the lights of London 30-plus years ago, enjoying a certain success in corporate life.  She gained a Masters in Adult Learning from Middlesex University during a second career coaching leaders of transformational change.

In 2020, she returned to New Zealand  for a long-planned sabbatical, covering 17,500km.  Enchanted by the quality of local light and scenery, Jane chose to make Tasman her home for half the year. 

We shall not cease from exploration 

And the end of all our exploring 

Will be to arrive where we started 

And know the place for the first time 

Through the unknown, remembered gate

When the last of earth left to discover 

Is that which was the beginning

At the source of the longest river

The voice of the hidden waterfall

And the children in the apple tree 

Not known because not looked for 

But heard, half-heard, in the stillness 

Between the two waves of the sea.

TS Elliot, Four Quartets
