Patterns and repetition, and the sometimes quirky and different, are what inspire her work.

In 2010 Jane became a certified Zentangle teacher and combines her love of Zentangle and quilting by bringing these two complementary mediums together. She has designed quilt patterns for publication in quilting magazines and produced a DVD showcasing the basics of Zentangle and quilting. She has taught numerous classes in Zentangle, quilting, free-motion stitching, making journal covers, and doll making.
