Adventures and trips to natural places and wilderness areas, sometimes very remote, form the foundation of Jane Rusdens’ work. Mode of transport is anything from her own two feet, to helicopter, motorbike or her trusty Toyota Landcruiser 4x4. She collects inspiration and material to work from in a tiny watercolour sketch book, when space and weight are at a premium on bush walking trips. In the back of her Landcruiser you're likely to find printmaking supplies and large rolls or sheets of paper, stored along side the mountain bike.
Embedded in Jane Rusden’s passion for wilderness and love of adventure is a strong conservation consciousness. It is this that runs through her work and manifests in a deep understanding of the environment and its inhabitants, especially the birds.
