Jane Hyder produces paintings, prints and cards from her studios in Karori and Toi Poneke Art Centre, Wellington, New Zealand. She has a graduate Diploma in Fine Art from Massey University and has been an exhibiting artist since 1978 both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. These are colourist prints and paintings that could be transported as though personal icons, but, embedded with the histories of their own production, their iconography becomes suggestive of the importance of the art-making process to the artist. The narratives here are thus double-sided. There are both the narratives if the art objects' histories and the narratives which the paintings themselves depict.

Above all, these are prints and paintings which translate faith through the creative process into art and in turn offer a gift, a generosity of spirit, from the artist to the viewer.
