About Jane

Jane Bell Lassiter is an artist, an instructor, a facilitator, a project manager for the federal government and a wife, daughter, aunt, and friend.  She launched Jane Bell Designs in 2013 selling her artwork online and exhibiting at art festivals from Raleigh, NC to Atlanta, GA. Through her use of color and texture, her artwork spreads happiness, fosters curiosity, and occasionally, inspires others to pick up a paintbrush.

Always a creative soul, Jane was inspired by pop artist Peter Max at a young age and continued her love of art, traveling across the United States and Europe moving frequently due to her father’s military career. Prior to moving to Virginia, Jane lived and worked in Chicago, where she spent hours wandering the Art Institute of Chicago studying the works of Picasso, Monet, Van Gough, Chagall, and others. Her artwork ranges from nonrepresentational abstracts filled with meaning and intention based on her life experiences to bright, happy, colorful pop art.

Jane balances her “day job” with her creative passions – painting, teaching in-home and on-site painting classes/workshops in the USA – #havepaintwilltravel.  She believes everyone has an “inner artist” and simply needs an introduction to what is in their soul… and she is on a mission to dispel the “I’m not creative!” myth one person at a time! In her spare time, she enjoys reading, travel, wine, and the Minions make her giggle.
