As an artist, I am fascinated by observing patterns, noticing closely how light interacts with both nature and our intense, dynamic urban landscapes. I attempt to capture and present visually the energy and spirit I observe and feel in our complex world. Lately I have become captivated by the presence of abstract patterns within both natural and manmade objects and structures and noticing that some can be revisited whilst others are only present in the moment the picture was taken. I love the discovery too of how the camera shifts our focus and emphasis from what our eyes natively see.
As a designer, I am creating my own textile art prints and collections for fashion and the home under the label LOUIS JANE™ (LouisJane.com and LouisJaneDesign on Social Media). A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Textile Design as well as graduate of the UCLA Anderson School MBA program and the California Institute of Technology, with a BS in Astronomy, I have been a successful entrepreneur who has created consumer products, and innovated technology solutions that make our lives easier. I was also co- founder of Surrogate Gallery Projects with Holly Boruck
The textiles and surface designs that I develop for LOUIS JANE™ come from my photography or original illustrations and paintings. I have been working with Digital printing technology to offer a rich and complex range of color on pure organic textiles: silks, wools, linens and other natural fibers.
