Jane Philips was born and raised in Alabama, USA. She holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and is currently an MFA candidate at the New York Academy 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 has work displayed in the Wiregrass Museum of Art's Biennial and the Huntsville Museum of Art's Red Clay Survey.
She currently attends the New York Academy of Art and lives in Manhattan with her dog Kaylee. It's Jane's mission to visit every dog friendly cafe on Manhattan.
