Jane Clift - Wire Sculptor.

Jane Clift was born in Essex in 1955 and moved to Hampshire at the age of 8 where she lived for 50 years. She is married with 2 children. Four years ago, she moved to Devon with her husband, daughter and three grandchildren and now lives in Dartmouth.

Jane initially started A Vintage Garden and became known for finding unusual pieces of art for the outdoors. She started making wire bird sculptures for her own garden, and very quickly took commissions. The first sculpture she sold, was to another artist, and was inspired by murmurations. This continues to be a major influence today. Largely self taught, Jane loves to create birds and small animals. Jane uses lots of different wire using this medium to sketch her sculptures which are a celebration of movement, grace and humour.
