Jayne Walther was born and raised in New Jersey. She always had a passion for art and nature. Putting that passion aside, she studied marketing and computer science at Fairleigh Dickinson University. She was a pioneer in introducing personal computers into the corporate world. After a decade of marketing technology in the New York City area, she moved to North Carolina.
In 1996 her interest in philosophy led her to study meditation, mindfulness, and Buddhist principles. Since then, she has taken and taught many related classes. In 2009 she was selected to attend the World Buddhist Forum and traveled to China and Taiwan.
Jayne returned to her heartfelt passion, art, in 2011. Her intuition kept nagging her to connect the dots. Somehow there was a connection between the arts and her work in mindfulness.
Jayne views her life’s work as having gone full circle. Having introduced personal productivity tools to the desks of many to increase “doing,” she now brings personal awareness and the idea of “being” to the minds of many.
Her art is the platform for mindful inspirations. She wants it to be a vehicle to inspire others to appreciate the moment and to just “be.”
Jayne lives in North Carolina with a son studying engineering, an engineer husband, a golden retriever, a parrot, and a backyard full of wildlife.
Creating art starts with an intention.
As an artist, I am a catcher of moments, a maker of shapes.
Sometimes my work is presented in a photograph. Sometimes the photograph becomes a more complex work of art where several images are merged into one. At other times the intention can be played out with other art materials such as paint.
Although I use various mediums to express my vision, intuition has become my greatest skill. I sharpen my intuition by meditating daily. I consider my art a vehicle to inspire peacefulness. My abstracts are peaceful illusions that allow the view’s mind to wonder and rest.
Currently I am working with oil and cold wax on panel. I am also exploring alternative platinum/palladium photo printing techniques.
