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

"I live in downtown Toronto where the natural and manufactured worlds are intertwined. I purposely search for and collect ignored or discarded objects that inspire my work. Transformed by unknown forces, these found objects 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 I do so, I make up stories about them and their relationship to other objects in my collection. 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
