The way Jane DeDecker sculpts the figure, is naturalistic, emphasizing the gesture and movement to help tell the story about the subject matter. One critic writes: “... you can tell she infuses her work with a sense of family and humanity that only a woman and a mother could have - no matter how hard an enlightened man may try ... and God knows I try.”
Jane’s technique reminds the viewer of the strength and energy of the human form.
The external layers of her texture allow her to capture the sensitivity of the moment.
Born into a large Iowan family in 1961 Jane moved to Colorado as a teenager. She currently works with 4 of her siblings out of her Loveland Colorado Studio.
Having studied and worked with painters, sculptors, and architects, Jane continues to weave her connections with the past into her present work.
