Jane Clift lives in Dartmouth, Devon where she makes three dimensional wire sculptures.

Largely self taught, Jane comes from an artistic family and from an early age had exposure to art and music which she went on to teach. In her teens, Jane won a place in the highly acclaimed National Youth Theatre where she appeared in a number of West End plays and a BBC Play for Today. She stage managed a play at the Edinburgh Festive, winning the best fringe award.

10 years ago, Jane had a serious accident which required a complete skin graft to her right hand and discovered weaving soft wire a fantastic therapy for regaining dexterity. The goal was to play the piano again, but she discovered a new love!

She started making wire sculptures for her garden. The first sculpture she sold, was to another artist. Jane is inspired by movement, grace and humour.
