Jane Slivka transplanted to beautiful Mount Dora, Florida in 2004. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio she often dreamed of the ocean and the scenes she now creates for all of us to enjoy.
Jane's paintings, normally on oversized canvases, take onlookers through a journey of layered acrylics to discover a world beyond what the camera could capture.
Originally Jane mastered the artistry of watercolors while she attended Endicott Junior College in Beverly, Massachusetts. She later graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Art Education. Studying for a semester in Florence, Italy, she gleaned much inspiration from the richness of the historical art and gorgeous landscapes.
One day, Jane decided to try acrylics, and she felt absolutely liberate by the strong colors and the ability to layer the thick layers of textured paint. From that moment forward she has been exploring, teaching, and motivating others to express artistically through painting with acrylics.
Jane Slivka now discovers new inspirations for her portfolio every day in the beauty all around her in Florida and in her travels. A truly gifted artist, she brings paint to life with ease and elegance. For the latest off the easel, come visit her at her studio-gallery in historic Mount Dora, Florida.
