Australian contemporary visual artist Jane Kempe, in the Maldives, with her painting “Beach Totem”.  In the background is the traditional Maldivian wooden boat called a Dhoni.

She states  “I’m fascinated by life underwater, the vibrancy of beach culture, and the lively world of sailing.”

Her dynamic career has included a three month residency in the glorious Maldives and exhibitions in Italy, France and London.  In Australia, Jane is regularly artist in residence tropical North Queensland.

Jane’s unique style explores vivid colours, texture and line. Her favourite painting mediums are acrylics and mixed media.

An inspiring quote was posted to Jane’s account by a Twitter user, who is a solo sailor from the USA,

“You paint what it is to sail.”

High praise indeed for Jane, an artist whose dream it is to sail the world’s oceans.

Her art is held in private collections globally.

The corporate sector have applied Jane’s design skills for striking logos and illustrations.

    We would like to mention that we saw some of your paintings in London where I was also exhibiting and we absolutely adore your work. The colours that you use are fascinating. We just wanted to tell how much we enjoyed looking at them.
