Love Jane’s artwork and communication style

I’ve been following Jane’s work through social media and have taken a couple of workshops over the last few years, so am over the moon excited about her new podcast! I really love her work and so appreciate her style of teaching. Her clear, precise, knowledgeable, inspiring, down-to-earth way of sharing her creative skill set and expertise in art making has really been a game changer for me as an artist.
