Jane Riley aspires to inspire before she expires! Drawing inspiration from the ’seen and the unseen’ these artworks depict the beauty Jane sees and interprets with tremendous energy, passion and flair-  food for the soul.  Artworks often incorporate textures of sand, gemstones, shells and other natural materials. The finished artworks are striking - unique - vibrating with flamboyant colour and design, expertly blended with bold brush strokes and confident palette knife.


Growing up beneath the spectacular Southern Alps at Fox Glacier where majestic peaks thrust thousands of metres above foothills blanketed with native rainforest. - Jane’s artworks reflect her love of the natural environment.

                     "Changing lights of day are constant sources of inspiration, as are the occasional auroras that appear in                                 crystal-clear starlit nights," she says.


Jane Riley is published as one of New Zealand’s Favourite Artists and her artworks are displayed in various national and international private collections. Extensive overseas travel has amplified the artist’s appreciation of the peace and beauty in   New Zealand where she feel fortunate to live “The life of Riley”.
