Jane Irwin is a Toronto based visual artist who works primarily with drawing media.

"In my everyday life in downtown Toronto and in travels to east and west Canadian coasts, I observe the intertwining of the natural and manufactured worlds. Everywhere, I find and collect ignored or discarded objects that seem to not belong completely to either sphere. Often transformed by unknowable forces, they no longer have to "be" something. They just "are" something. I see beauty in this. I begin my drawings with careful observations of these objects. As the work takes shape, other inspirations seep into the evolving process, including references to drawing itself. The end results blend representational and abstract imagery that invites contemplation and personal interpretation."

Jane Irwin is represented by Sivarulrasa Gallery in Almonte, Ontario. sivarulrasa.com
