Welcome to Jane Allen Creates
I enjoy so many things creative. I love to decorate my home, cook, bake, entertain, paint and design and above all else I love the creator of everything. On this blog I will share a little bit about all of my loves with you.
I will be sharing new designs and things that I am painting on, but I want it to be so much more than that. I hope to share with you cooking and baking tips and some of my favorite recipes, pictures and ideas for decorating my home during the year and painting tips and projects. I will share with you projects that I do with others and hopefully together we can grow and share the love of art.
I Hope we can encourage each other in our journey and become great friends even if we never meet in person.
I have lots of ideas and it will be fun to see how they unfold. Looking forward to our time together.
About my love of Art
I have always enjoyed art and creating. As a child I was busy cutting, taping, coloring, painting, sewing and gluing. My dolls and dog were always well dressed and live in the most wonderful creations. Art supplies were always on my Christmas list.
I tried and enjoyed many different art forms, but in my late 20’s I took a stroke-work class and have been painting ever since. Over the years I took classes from many different teachers developing my own style. In 2002 I started drawing and painting my own designs. I was fortunate to design for some multi-author books, a single book, and many magazine articles as well as pattern packets.
I am married to my best friend, Allan. We love to cook and entertain and enjoy spending time with family and friends. Al loves to garden and always has our yard looking like paradise. We are both retired from our “real Jobs” so this is a very sweet time in our lives. Even though we don’t have children we are blessed with many wonderful nieces and nephews and other special people in our lives that we love.
I feel very blessed and am thankful to be doing all that I love. If you would like to see more of my designs you can go to my website: www.janeallencreates.com
