Jane joined HTA in 1997. She runs and manages all aspects of the kitchen at HTA with the help of her assistant, including ordering of fresh produce and dried products, stock control of the storeroom, liaising with the office manager and other staff re meetings and special requirements. She organises and prepares delicious healthy lunches for the staff at HTA, three days a week. Jane continues to add to and develop her range of lunches while keeping a close eye on the budget!
Jane has a background in fine art and juggles part time work at HTA with a developing career as a glass artist. She is building up a portfolio of projects and commissions, combining this with working towards exhibitions and competitions.
Jane won the 2012 Stevens Competition, run by The Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass. The brief was for a window in St Michaels Hospice in Hereford being built by Architype Architects. Richard Williams, formerly of HTA made her an excellent visualisation for her winning design.
Jane has recently continued her professional development by studying part time at UCL Institute of Education to obtain a PGCE to teach Art and Design in the post compulsory and secondary sector.
