Jane Evans studied Chinese Brush Painting at the Chinese Artists' Guild in Manila. After returning to Cambridge she continued to develop her painting, exploring the versatility of Chinese techniques and materials - using them in adventurous ways and, occasionally, combining them with other media.
Jane has exhibited widely in one-woman and group shows and runs classes and workshops in Britain and abroad. Her books and articles have played a major role in popularising Chinese painting techniques in Europe and the USA. She is Honorary Co-President of the Chinese Brush Painters Society.
