About Jane Maday:
“I love painting, birdwatching, and being a mom to my wonderful kids and a wife to my wonderful hubby (AKA Mr Right).”
Jane Maday began her career at 14 years of age, as a scientific illustrator for the University of Florida. After receiving a Bachelor's degree from the Ringling College of Art and Design, she was recruited by Hallmark Cards, Inc, as a greeting card illustrator. Though her scientific past helps Jane add realism to her artwork, she soon discovered she enjoys painting the outsides of animals to the insides!
Jane left the corporate world after her children were born, and moved to beautiful Colorado. In addition to the breathtaking landscape, menagerie of animals, and garden for inspiration, she has two children and a wonderful husband to share it all.
Jane Maday’s work:
Jane’s artwork has adorned 25 children's books, as well as collector's plates, ornaments, cards, t-shirts, garden flags, jigsaw puzzles, and many more. Jane Maday's art has been licensed onto many successful products, such as home decor, cards, flags, puzzles, t-shirts, needlepoint and cross-stitch kits, paint by numbers, and more. (For licensing inquiries, please contact Debby Leggat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-740-9453.)
Recently, Jane added author to her list of accomplishments, writing the best-selling art instruction book, "Adorable Animals You Can Paint "(published by F&W Publications), as well as numerous smaller works and magazine articles. Two new F&W books are in the works: "Cute Country Animals You Can Paint" (available Christmas 2007), and "Landscapes In Bloom" (available Christmas 2008).
Jane also keeps a blog detailing her “adventures and pitfalls in the world of art licensing, and also painting, kids, and life in general!”
