Artist Statement

Jayne Willoughby works with textiles and mixed media painting and drawing. She continues to be inspired by her early life on the southern Alberta prairies. Her textiles focus on exploring spareness in composition and use of neutral color palettes. Jayne’s fascination and exploration of the human condition appear in the obsessive mark-making, and a visual process of revealing things hidden in her mixed media paintings and drawings. She has recently focused on a series of mixed media drawings and paintings exploring the ways humans hide the shadow parts of themselves from others.
