About BalletoJayne


Mixed-media ballet inspired art and craft.

Hi, my name is Jayne. I am a former nurse, movement to music teacher and balletomane! I have loved ballet for as long as I can remember, attending classes and performances most of my life. I also love art and craft. Now retired, I spend time creating mixed-media art inspired by ballet, paper dolls ( loved playing with these as a child!) and lace.
My pictures are created from several layers of watercolour paper, fabric and lace.
1. Plain watercolour paper.
2. My handwritten text of ballet terms printed onto watercolour paper.
3. A cut-out of my hand drawn/coloured in paper doll which is printed onto watercolour paper and re-touched by hand. I place her limbs to give the impression of movement.
4. A dress of pretty fabric.
5. Finally a hand dyed or cream lace motif and other vintage lace trimmings.
I digitally reduce the original piece for jewellery, magnets, bookmarks etc. retouching by hand.
