Inspired at an early age by her father's painting and sculpting Jayne majored in Graphic Arts at San Diego State University and began her career as a computer artist. Jayne's background in graphic design is seen in her paintings; they are bright and bold with a strong sense of design. She paints what inspires her, capturing a moment in time. Her work is influenced by her personal day-to-day experiences as well as her travels abroad. Jayne specializes in watercolor and displays her work around San Diego. Her works include local scenes, figures, landscapes, animals, and commissioned work. She also teaches watercolor classes and workshops in her coastal art studio in Encinitas.
Each year Jayne donates an original watercolor or free watercolor class package to one or two of her favorite charities. She donated to the CAF- Challenged Athletes Foundation, Encinitas YMCA, San Diego Surfrider Foundation and St. James Academy in Solana Beach.
