About the Artist
Jane Ormes was born in Bromley in 1964. She graduated with a degree in Surface Pattern Design but now concentrates on producing whimsical and decorative limited edition prints available from selected galleries throughout the country. She spends any spare time daydreaming about Daniel Craig and ginger flapjack (although not together obviously!). " My screen prints reflect my take on the world. I produce playful, colourful images, often involving animals in absurd situations. I like to think that these creatures all have a secret life that we know nothing about. I keep a notebook to jot down unusual names or lyrical phrases as these can often lead to an idea but it’s more likely that I will be inspired by a story or situation that tickles me. Drawing, patterns & textures are all integral to my work as well as large areas of flat bold colour which can be achieved by the screen printing process."
Screenprints are produced by pushing ink through a fine mesh stretched over a wooden or aluminium frame. By using a photographic process the image to be printed is exposed onto the mesh. The ink is pulled across by a rubber blade called a squeegee and is deposited onto the paper beneath. Each colour is printed separately. It is a lengthy and labour intensive process that has taught Jane two things: patience, and how to remove acrylic ink from a variety of fabrics.
