Jane Thorniley-Walker takes her inspiration from the flora and fauna around her home on the edge of the North York Moors. Her starting point in any project is close observation and an eye for the extraordinary in everyday sights, be it the colour of a pheasant wing or the movement of a barn owl or house martin.

Jane combines traditional materials such as vitreous glass and smalti with recycled pieces. She often collects mosaic materials from European travels -  particularly drawn to Italy and the aesthetics of Byzantine and Roman art. 


 Jane has worked as a mosaic artist for the past ten years based at her home in Osmotherley, North Yorkshire.

She undertakes commissions for homes and gardens and has also regularly worked on community and school projects as well as providing adult workshops.
