Jane Gillespie, Nashville, TN
Jane Gillespie spent most of her youth in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Salem, Virginia. Because of this, she has always had a great love of nature and has an unquenched and unconquerable desire to try to capture this beauty.
Jane co-owned and operated Chole's Art Gallery & Studio with fellow artist and friend Linda Dunlap. She has been commissioned by The Heritage Alliance, McMinnville's local historian and alderman, and private collectors to restore some historic paintings. Jane paints for the pure joy it gives her. She enjoys painting with watercolors, oils, and recently acrylics. She loves the delicacy of the watercolors, but truly enjoys the challenge of oils.
