Watercolor - Other/Misc.

Born in Western Massachusetts, I was influenced early in my art education by Leo Blake, a noted New England land and seascape artist and Post Magazine illustrator. At ten years old I won an art contest and my parents channeled my winnings into oil painting lessons with Blake. In college I took as many art courses as possible. Work and family plus a two-year stint as a Powder Puff Painter consumed my life but I always knew I would pick up that smaller paintbrush, again. After settling into life in New Bern, NC my fingers started to itch, signaling. "It is time to get back into painting-pictures, not walls." Today, somewhat influenced by Impressionism, I paint mostly architectural, landscape and florals in watercolor and acrylics.

River Bend artist featured
By Charlie Hall
Sun Journal Staff

RIVER BEND - At age 65, Jane Needham revived her childhood passion for painting, and in the ensuing five years it would not be an understatement to say she has become prolific.

She is the featured artist at the annual "A Touch of Class" art show at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center Friday through Sunday in Havelock.

She was busy Monday, preparing about 40 entries for the show. Paintings lined the walls of her den.

As a youngster in western Massachusetts, she took art lessons and won awards for her paintings, but art dropped into the background during high school.
