Lane has been painting with oils for several years. Influenced by painters like Corot, Pissaro, Rembrandt, and currently Michael Flohr, Pino and Carl Ortman, she is inspired to put color, beauty and feeling into her paintings as these incredible artists have. Lane spent time living in England, France and Japan, and has traveled to places like Manilla and South Africa. Her love for all things English is evident in her work, especially the nightlife—pub scenes and double decker buses that are so classic. The use of strong colors and unusual subjects makes her work original and exciting. Lane has been truly blessed to study with many artists through the years. One of her favorite artists, Carl Ortman, has become an amazing mentor and dear friend.
