She has had solo exhibitions over the years in Hong Kong, Ottawa, Kuala Lumpur and New York as well as in London. She is planning to have a solo show of about 60 works in October 2020 to mark her 60 years of painting at the Oriel Gallery in Newport Pembrokeshire www.thegallery-yroriel.com.

Her book Painting in Oils and Watercolour is currently being translated into Chinese and will be published in China later this year.
Jane is a passionate supporter of figurative painting. To observe closely and record everyday subjects is the essence of her paintings. Her oils and watercolours and her prints reflect her response to the quality and surprises of light and colour. She constructs her painting with much thought building a composition which steers towards the abstract but never foregoing the figurative tradition. Sir Kenneth Clark said that “above all else art must be life enhancing” and Jane Corsellis’s work reveals and celebrates that for us.
