After setting up a small textile business and working in interior design in England, Jane moved to Auburn with her family in 1998. A trip to Kauai inspired her to transfer the colorful images she saw to fabric. The first quilt she entered into a competition won first place—and the prize was a sewing machine! Her work has since been juried into many shows and displayed around the country.
In 2012 Jane opened an Etsy shop, Happy Quilt Designs, where she sells personalized quilts using her customers’ own t-shirts and other textiles they send to her.
