Jane Evans Paintings
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.
A Cambridge graduate, Jane Evans learned Brush Painting at the Chinese Artists’ Guild in Manila, studying with Professor Chen Bingsun and with Lingnan artists, Hau Chiok and Sy Chiu Hua. She returned to the UK in 1978 and continued to develop her painting, concentrating on freestyle techniques.

Artist's Statement:
Jane Evans exploits the versatility of Chinese techniques and materials by using them in adventurous ways, occasionally incorporating mono-printing techniques. Her work draws on Eastern and Western ideas about light, space and perspective and represents a fusion of the two aesthetic traditions.In addition to exhibiting her work, Jane undertakes commissions and gives courses, lectures, workshops and demonstrations in Britain and abroad. In 1996 she presented, by invitation, a paper on Chinese painting at Princeton at a symposium celebrating the University’s 250th anniversary. Jane has published four influential books about Chinese painting techniques. Her first book, published in 1987, defined a new market: Western painters interested in the Oriental approach to art. She has written articles and art reviews for British and foreign art journals. She has appeared on radio and TV and as BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s art critic. With Qu Lei Lei she is Honorary Co-President of the Chinese Brush Painters Society.
