Ep 82 - Jane Filer : Being Who You Are

I had a wonderful chat with Jane Filer in North Carolina. Jane paints the world through her own distinctive lens. Nature spirits with cars, wood elves and steam ships, horses and high-rises. Her paintings are deep and dreamy. She has won many awards and high profile commissions in her 40+ year career as a painter. She has had numerous solo and groups shows and her work is collected widely throughout America and the rest of the world.

We talk about ducks, dreams, comedians, and of course art, lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • Australian influences,
  • Primitive art and post-impressionist,
  • Abstract under painting,
  • Surface modeling,
  • Being polite,
  • Developing style,
  • Unseen worlds,
  • Teaching art,
  • Classical training,
  • Underlying themes,
  • Sculpture,
  • Performance art,
  • Social media,
  • Art Business,
  • New work,
  • Artistic challenges,
