Jane Ormes was born in Bromley in 1964. She graduated with a degree in Surface Pattern Design but now concentrates on producing whimsical and decorative limited edition prints. Her screenprints reflect her take on the world. She produces playful, colourful images, often involving animals in absurd situations. She likes to think that these creatures all have a secret life that we know nothing about. Part of her working practice is to keep a notebook and jot down unusual names or lyrical phrases as these can often lead to an idea. More often however, Ormes is inspired by a story or situation that grabs her. Drawing, patterns and textures are all integral to her work, as are the large areas of flat bold colour which can be achieved by the screenprinting process.
