"Believe me, trust me" by Jane Cowie
B. Jane Cowie has been working with glass for over 30 years. After gaining a Visual Arts Degree at Sydney College of the Arts, Jane travelled extensively in the 1980s to learn more about art, glass and life. Returning to Australia in the 1990’s she played an important role in the development of contemporary craft in South Australia. Completing a Masters Degree in Visual Arts, A Glassmakers Perspective - History and Practice of studio glassmaking in South Australia at the University of South Australia, she moved to Singapore in 2003, to embark on a new adventure to see, learn and experience living and working in South East Asia. Continuing to develop her practice as an individual artist exhibiting in various galleries, Jane has predominately been working within the broader construction industry to design and develop large art installations, purpose-built for private and commercial spaces.
Cowie says: ‘I am not sure why I am fascinated by wallpaper – something to do with the notion of the perfect house with the perfect life, with the perfect domestic bliss...’
