Jane Dell was born in Brooklyn, New York and began her study of fine art at the high school of Music and Art, continued at the School of Visual Arts and received her BFA from Pratt Institute.
She studied textile and fabric arts at Parsons School of Design, created a hand-painted silk business, and exclusively sold work at The Show of Hands gallery in New York, including commissions for hand-painted silk folding screens.
For the last 20 years her artwork has been focused on painting, collage and mixed media. She finds inspiration for her work from the everyday responses to our environment, creating unfamiliar worlds from the familiar using acrylic, oil and watercolor ink with collaged photo imagery.
Jane has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions at colleges, universities, and museums including solo exhibitions at the Monmouth Musem, Delaware Valley Art Alliance, Jersey City Drawing Rooms and Saratoga Springs Art Center. Dell's group exhibitions include Lesley Heller Workspace, Central Booking Offline Gallery, 33 Orchard Gallery, 111 Front Street in Brooklyn, Theresa A. Maloney Art Gallery, College of St. Elizabeth, and Rutgers University Gallery. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Hudson County Community College, the Monmouth Museum, NYLO Hotel Gallery, Broadway, NY, RSI Bank, Rahway, NJ, The Dennis Hull Collection, and the International Art Fair, Matera, Italy.
