Jude started painting in her early teens and continued until family commitments became too great and she put painting on hold. In 2012 Jude began a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Secondary Education, with a renewed passion for painting.
Jude is inspired by her mother's career as an artist and teacher of Russian “Zhostova” decorative art and the Russian masters of her early years.
During Jude’s studies of Visual Arts, she investigated many different mediums and has combined them with the skills she has learnt through previous experiences, in producing an array of different styles, all with the same undercurrent of techniques.
Jude Lane’s attraction to burnt patterning, gold leaf and inlaying shell and semi-precious stones has become the main focus throughout her works.
