300 North 5th Street , Garland, TX
Start date: Tuesday, January 22, 2013
End Date: Thursday, February 28, 2013
When Jane married Morten, she became instantly connected to Garland and all the wonderful cultural events in the arts including the fabulous musicals and plays. They married in 1993. Morten, however, begins back in the 1960’s buying cars from Newman Chevrolet---later in 1967, Morten started buying mortgages every month from the Peavy Hubbard Mortgage Company and banking at the Garland Bank and Trust. Morten was later asked to join the Bank Board at Century Bank & Trust. This renewed his friendship with Woody and Linda Brownlee. They first started as college friends at Texas Tech. Jane entered the scene in 1993 when she and Morten married. Jane’s family background centered in the arts, as her father, one of her brothers, and uncle were all architects. Having studied art herself at Austin College, she married and raised a family and became a real estate broker with Ebby Halliday Real Estate for the last 34 years. Jane encouraged Woody Brownlee to join the Ebby Team, much to her pleasure. Her passion for art was ignited when she was introduced to pleine air painting (on location) in 1999. She began her renewed interest under the instruction of Jane Starks, Mary Vernon (a SMU art director), Suzanne Kelly Clark with SMU at Fort Berwin at Taos and also in Ddalls, the New York Studio School under Stanley Lewis, and Stephen Quiller in Creede, Co. As you will see a large part of her painting comes from the love of the outdoors—her time to paint is during her travels to New Mexico, Colorado, California, and various Texas sites. Her sketch books are a dairy of her travels. She starts sketching the minute we turn west on Highway 380. Jane is passionate about her art and hope you enjoy seeing it as much as she enjoys producing it.
