Jane Halliwell Green


"Off Kilter"

May 21, 2024


Susan grew up in Columbus Ohio and attended The Ohio State University where
she received a degree in Fine Arts Education. Following graduation and
marriage she moved to Denver, Colorado where she taught elementary school

Following the birth of her first child she enrolled at the University of Denver and
took art classes to keep her teaching certificate updated. After the birth of her
second child the family moved back to Beavercreek and Susan enrolled in
Jewelry design classes at Wright State University where she learned
silversmithing. As her family business changed from a wholesale floral grower
into a retail garden center she became involved with advertising, display and
signage work. As the business expanded into the florist business she put her
design skills into floral design for next 20 years.

Susan comes from a family of artists and that has been an inspiration to always
try to be creative. Her mother was a very creative homemaker, seamstress,
needleworker and painter of large abstract work. Her father was a bird carver
and produced hundreds of exquisite life like birds in great detail. Susan came to
watercolor about 10 years ago and has found it frustrating, difficult and happily
challenging! She has recently begun to paint abstract work which takes her
back to the art of the 1950-1960 days (her college days) when artists like
Elsworth Kelly, Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella and others were
creating large minimal art with the emphasis on shape and color.

Susan is also intrigued with painting negative space and often uses it in the
work. She likes seeing the “patterns in nature” with trees, grasses and such and
these shapes between the objects become lovely patterns. She says she thinks
she must just have a short attention span as she moves from one thing and style
to another but it keeps life interesting.

Advice: Respond to stimuli around you and do art for yourself…if others like it
that is a bonus!

Jane Halliwell Green’s interest in art began as a little girl watching her Irish grandmother hook rugs. She was fascinated by color and texture and loved to work with her hands. By 1992, Jane was a well-known textile designer and teacher. She was the first rug designer invited to teach at the Smithsonian in Washington D, C. and was affiliated with this institution for over 6 years. She is the author of three books on fiber-arts.

Jane began using colored pencils and watercolors to plan rug designs.  She loved these two mediums and decided to go back to school to study fine art. In May, 2005 she graduated from the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. She taught watercolor in the Portland, Maine schools, The Maine College of Art, and The Art Academy in Easton. She was an adjunct instructor at Anne Arundel Community College and an instructor at Maryland Hall for the Arts in Annapolis, Maryland before moving to Dayton Ohio.  She has also taught at the Miamisburg Art Gallery in Miamisburg, Ohio.

Jane was a signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Currently she is a member of the Ohio Watercolor Society and The Western Ohio Watercolor Group. Her work in watercolor, color pencil, and fiber has been exhibited nationally.  Her focus today is the depiction of plants and flowers in a detailed Botanical style.
