Jane Meyler

Born in Dublin, artist Jane Meyler lives overlooking the Irish sea in the house where she spent her childhood summers in Rosslare Strand, County Wexford. Here, the first light of sunrise comes through the bank of tall daisies and into her open front door. She is steeped in the beauty of this delightful place and loves the light and the sea in all its many moods. It is perhaps inevitable that she would be a landscape painter. Jane is a committed plein air artist and on most days can be found at her easel down on the beach or on the cliffs above or round the promontory to ‘The Burrow’ which looks out on the River Slaney estuary and the evening sunset.

Jane is a natural artist, largely self-taught, with a sureness of touch and an innate colour sense which serve her so well in capturing the fleeting effects of sunlight, cloud and wave. Her paintings are peaceful and have a serene beauty. Mostly she works in oils, on location, using a portable paintbox. Using bristle paintbrushes to build  layers of paint and create texture, she will also use a palette knife to apply passages of clear brilliant colour, to render facets of wet rock or capture the glint of the sea. At other times, she will turn to pastels for their immediacy and convenience. Jane has achieved recognition in both mediums.
