Jane McGovern

Because people and nature fascinate me, I am impassioned to paint and/or sculpt what I see. Both joyful and sometimes difficult, it is how I choose to express my vision of humankind and our planet. It is my life’s joy to be able to share my art with others.

Jane is a Signature Member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society (PWCS) and presently serve on its board as Historian. She is a member of the Haverford Guild of Craftsman, Delaware County Art League, Community Art Center of Wallingford, Tri-States Artists Equity and the Media Arts Registry.

From 1972 to 1983, Jane attended classes at the Tyler School of Art, Neumann College and studied under Rea Redifer, a student of Andrew Wyeth. She attended Rosemont College 1986 to 1989 and graduated with a BFA degree. During school and after graduation, she worked 11 years for a corporation as a Graphic Artist Specialist as well as a free lance artist completing commissions for portraits, landscapes, murals, abstracts and personal wedding invitations. 

In 1998, Jane retired to concentrate entirely on her own art and continued her studies at a watercolor workshop with Jeanne Dobie, AWS in Marathon, Keys, Florida. She also attended Widener University for 5 years where she studied writing with the idea of incorporating writing into her art. 

Jane uses her at-home studio to teach watercolor lessons, paint and to make ceramics.
