Jayne is an award-winning textile artist/designer living near Rhosneigr on the Isle of Anglesey.

A graduate in Fashion/Textile Design BA (Hons), Jayne initially worked as a fashion designer before specialising in textiles. 

Much of her work captures the beautiful surrounding landscape with a contemporary twist.  Whether a vibrant palette of painted silk or a collage of stitched appliqué, both are encapsulated by simplicity of line in Jayne’s artwork.  Her style is naïve yet shows a sophistication and assurance in design with careful execution which she has developed over the last 20 years.

Jayne has exhibited in Ireland and throughout Wales with work held in private and public collections across the world. Jayne is a member of The International Guild of Silk Painters, The North Wales Society of Fine Art and The Anglesey Arts Forum.

Jayne's artwork, prints and cards are available at shows and exhibitions throughout the year and at stockists across North wales, or please contact her direct - commissions are always welcome.

Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital Commission

Vibrant images of familiar North Wales landscapes have now brightened up the walls of Ysbyty Gwynedd's emergency department thanks to a local Anglesey artist.

The A & E department at Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in Bangor, North wales has recently undergone a major rebuild. As part of the refit, the project team wanted to brighten the walls of the hospital to create a more welcoming environment. In addition, using images of well-known local places will help signpost patents and visitors more clearly around the hospital - particularly those living with dementia who relate better to pictures rather than words.



Jayne was delighted to be selected, with the team at Ysbyty Gwynedd loving the way her artwork captures the surrounding landscape of Anglesey and North wales and being particularly bright and colourful. Working together, Jayne and the team selected seven images from her portfolio which they agreed would best fit the criteria, and which Jayne had agreed to donate. The images have been printed onto a heavy-duty matte vinyl with a self-adhesive back, to be applied directly to the hospital walls, this being easily wipeable. The original silk painting of the largest one selected was just over 1m wide, with the digitally printed version 4m wide.

Jayne explains that as the first picture went up people were smiling, which is all she could have wished for in the hope from the beginning that her artwork might bring some comfort to patients and their families.
