Jane Penfield is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and of Connecticut Pastel Society. She has served for three years as President of the Connecticut Pastel Society and is also past president of Arts Center East in Vernon, Connecticut.
Jane is inspired by nature, as well as to the human influence on it, especially elements that evoke light, drama, and emotion. Her work is an impression of light and life as she has experienced it through walking, travel, and direct observation. She finds great joy in the creative process and in teaching. In addition to offering a weekly pastel class, she is available for demos and workshops.
