Jane Radstrom

studied drawing and painting at Watts Atelier California. The methods practiced in atelier schools are based on meticulous renaissance traditions of masterful realism. Then, she attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, earning a BFA in Illustration. Illustration is all about bringing ideas to life – it is art created to clearly convey specific meaning. Now, she creates works which she considers to be contemporary realism out of her studio in Austin, TX.

She is a part of a centuries-old tradition of artists depicting the human form, but she also wants her art to be something that would not have been created hundreds of years ago. Recently, she has been inspired by photographic effects, specifically the manipulation of exposure to create images that look ‘real’, but contain more than a single still image. In choosing poses, she focuses on nuances of body language and expression. It is important to her that the girls are presented realistically, showing unidealized beauty and what she thinks of as a modern sense of confidence in candid moments, she hopes that when you stand in front of a piece you can feel the presence of the person depicted.
