Jane Philips was born and raised in the Heart of Dixie (Alabama, USA) and holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She works with innovative and traditional materials to create dark, textural environments that she populates with haunting figures. Many of her works are a reflection of her struggle with anxiety and exploration of identity.
She has exhibited in museums across the Southeast United States and most recently won the People's Choice Award at the Huntsville Museum of Art's 2017 Red Clay Survey.
She currently lives in Huntsville, Alabama with her cat, Jazzy, and her dog Kaylee. Jane has a studio space at Lowe Mill ARTS and Entertainment. Kaylee is a most excellent studio assistant.
