Jane Prescott

“I am from Bolton, England and I moved to California in 2000. I have studied, exhibited and taught art in the Bay Area. I am originally an oil painter but for the past 15 years I have worked mainly in colored pencil, graphite and mixed media (gouache and colored pencil).

Recently I have been focusing on wildlife illustration and pet portraits. I enjoy the challenge of creating the different textures of fur, skin and feathers found in nature. I particularly enjoy drawing and painting birds with their vast array of beautiful colors.

I have exhibited my work at San Francisco Zoo, Fremont Art Association and Ohlone College, Fremont. The pieces I include here are my two most recent pet portrait commissions: a long haired cat named “Kitten” and a sweet natured Staffordshire bull terrier named “Charlie.”
