Wool On Canvas: Artwork by Jane Denton

I love unique artwork that isn’t on everyone else’s walls, don’t you? That’s why I’m so drawn to original works from artists and also those random vintage paintings found at flea markets – they really become your own. When I heard from Jane Denton recently, a textile artist and designer from New Zealand, I fell in love with her contemporary, colorful artwork which predominantly uses wool on canvas. It’s so happy!

If you are interested in inquiring about her work, you can contact Jane directly or work with either Allium Interiors or Small Acorns. If you worry about shipping expenses, I’m sure she can send pieces unframed and flat packed for international post so then you simply need to have your lovely piece framed locally. Easy!

To learn more about Jane, you can read a fab interview on The Design Chaser here.

Such lovely and unique work! I particularly love seeing a grouping above a sofa – don’t you?

    I love this modern take on a traditional old-fashioned craft. The result is a fresh, contemporary artwork which has great texture and graphic appeal. With the explosion of art walls loaded with popular prints, this really stands out as something special! Beautiful, bright and, above all, original!

    So GREAT! Fresh, graphic and a lovely modern spin on a traditional craft. With an explosion of generic prints on art walls, this is a breath of fresh air – an original curation of bold, contemporary eye candy! thanks for this inspiration, Holly. xo

    So lovely to see Jane’s work featured here. I’m a massive fan, and very lucky to own two of her pieces. They are even more beautiful in real life! Thanks for sharing my interview x
