Jane Crisp's art is inspired by, and imbued with, her love of the natural world. Born in Auckland, the artist moved to the more rural surrounds of the Waikato in the 1990s, and the wildlife of the region has provided the ideal subjects for her skills.
Crisp, who is largely self-taught, has been painting professionally for over a decade, and had her first solo show in 2003. Since that time, she has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions, and her work has garnered several awards, most notably the James Chapman Award at the 2004 Franklin Arts Festival. In 2008, Crisp was featured in Denis Robinson's book "New Zealand's Favourite Artists, volume 2".
