“Creating the the energy of the painting is more important to me then the detailed record ot the reality. I attempt to portray the true beauty of the subject matter in the fewest strokes possible.”

Jane Romanishko, ASA, was born in Russia in 1964 and is a graduate of the College of Art Education in Siberia. As well as the 4 years of study involving art history, painting and drawing in European traditions, Jane also holds a Masters Degree in Architecture.
Before finally settling in Canada, Jane lived in Estonia and the United States. Being equally proficient in oil, watercolour and pastel allows her to be a versatile artist and teacher. Her professional accomplishments include the founding of The Airdrie School of Art, the founding of The Gallery in Airdrie and co-founding Airdrie Regional ARTS Society.
She has participated in numerous group shows, as well as solo exhibitions. Her work can be found in many private collections throughout North America, Russia and Australia.
