About the Artist

Jane Lawton Baldridge, ASMA – bio 2021
Her artwork has been exhibited in numerous solo and group juried exhibitions in galleries and museums. The most notable include Times Square, The Musée du Louvre, Lincoln Center (2x), the Museum of Computer Art, the Mint Museum, the Elliott Museum, the Cameron Museum of Art, the Fayetteville Museum of Art and the World Festival of Art on Paper (Slovenia). She has won competitions at local, regional and international levels. She has been published and also has a print of “We the People,” her 911 Tribute, in the print section of the Library of Congress.
Jane was taught by John Mandel and influenced by Douglas Huebler and John Baldessari, all at California Institute of the Arts, to never repeat what has been done, to do new art. Arthur Turner at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, taught her to work in multiple media at the same time, to keep the creative ideas flowing.
Jane has worked three-dimensionally in found objects, clay and sculptural stained glass as well as two-dimensionally in drawing, painting and groundbreaking digital media. She now mixes all of that experience into rich visual stories about things she is passionate about.

Her newest works are Sea Stories. She has been painting moving water for decades using various media. She utilizes viscosity and alchemy to get the outcome she wants and feels these current paintings are the closest she has come to eliciting the paint to tell her story.
She has a deep respect for the ocean, tides, currents and wind. Sometimes you may not know if she is offering those up in her images as literal or metaphorical forces. When asked why there is so much blue in her works she explained, “when you are offshore out of sight of land, you spend days if not weeks looking at blue sky and blue water. I am not sure why it is not everyone’s favorite color.”

She is a licensed boat captain and lived on boats for 10 years with her husband and their dog. They have settled in Stuart where she now has a beautiful studio. She watches how the water moves, how it sculpts shorelines, depositing sand or eroding it away.
