Jane Carpanini studied at the Faculty of Art and Design at Brighton Polytechnic and at the School of Education at the University of Reading where she acquired her Art Teachers Certificate. She became a member of the Royal Watercolour Society, eventually serving as that Society's Honorary Treasurer. She also holds membership to the Royal Society of British Artists. The grandeur of Snowdonia and the everyday life there have inspired much of her work. Her landscapes are almost entirely unpopulated and executed in watercolour. Jane has had many solo exhibitions in private galleries such as the Patricia Wells Gallery, Thornbury in 1976, The National Museum of Wales in 1984 and the Albany Gallery, Cardiff in 1991. She has shown regularly at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions and the Royal Society of British Artists. Jane Carpanini won the Hunting Group Prize for the best watercolours by a British Artist in 1983.
