Brief Summary
Jane E and her brother Guyan were brought up by wolves in a remote part of the north east of Scotland. As adolescents they were slowly introduced to society, teaching each other to read and write and eventually going to school in Aberdeen.

On leaving school Janee travelled extensively, searching for life’s hidden meanings. She lived and worked in Europe, Eastern Asia and the Middle East but unenlightened, she returned to Scotland to study psychology and art. ‘I had been dabbling in oil painting since I was a young child. My grandmother always had a painting on the easel so I spent many hours with her, drawing, painting and absorbing the aromatic mysteries of linseed oil and turpentine.’ In 2000, Janee relocated to the wilds of north east Scotland, where she has maintained her career as a painter since.
