vulnerable & fearless

Jane Reväe McWhirter is a visual artist from Saskatoon, SK, which is on Treaty 6 Territory. In 2019 Jane  received her BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University in Montreal, majoring in painting and ceramics.

Jane creates as an outlet, channeling emotion into her work while exploring a multitude of mediums. Jane's work often involves themes of healing, vulnerability, connection, personal growth, overcoming trauma, issues of  mental health, feminism, nature and the occult. Her work often features women in a wide array of emotions; in an attempt to explore the strength and power of being a woman that is honouring and embracing her authentic self.

 
Jane has spent several years using art to promote personal growth, build community and help improve the lives of others. She’s worked with people from all backgrounds and of all ages but specializes in working with at-risk youth.
Currently Jane is working on maintaining an active practice as an artist, post education. Jane has been exploring wheel throwing, creating small bowls, dishes and cups. She  has been learning to embroider, with some help from the internet, but mostly just learning by doing. She is creating several collections of work for sale. With plans to launch an online store stocked with embroidered patches, ceramics, customized clothing,  prints, stickers, and more in the near future.
