"I trust Jane to do a remarkable job photographing my oil paintings. She is a detail-oriented photographer with the trained eye and mind of an artist. She recognizes the subtle color and distinct qualities of my artwork and understands the importance of capturing these in her images. She has the knowledge and equipment to offer a high resolution image of my paintings for use in reproductions, websites, postcards, etc. Her images are crisp, clean and very sharp. In addition to all that she is also a delight to work with"!
