About the artist
London based artist Jane Mackay initially trained as a doctor and worked as a GP whilst pursuing a parallel career as an artist. In the millennium, Jane relinquished medicine to focus on her artistic career full time.
Though her choice of subjects is wide-ranging, her main passion is painting music. Fascinated by the relationship between the visual and auditory parts of the brain, Jane captures and commits to paper the images she visualises when listening to music.
Jane has exhibited extensively in the UK, including solo shows at the Salisbury and Aldeburgh Festivals, at London's Wigmore Hall and at the RNCM Broadwood International Festival in Manchester. She has also exhibited at the Watercolours and Drawings Fair (Royal Academy) and the Art and Antiques Fair (the Spring Olympia).
Jane gained her Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in July 2016 after two years studying at Wimbledon College of Arts, University of Arts, London. The next few years will see further exhibitions of Jane’s work all over the United Kingdom, including a collaboration with members of a professional string quartet to launch a new festival of 'art, music and synaesthesia' in Dublin, in early 2019.
It is a privilege and a delight for Kensington Park School to feature so many of Jane’s paintings in ‘Sounding Art’: the school’s Autumn Term 2017 exhibition.
