I've loved art since I was at school where I grew up in England. Over the years, I have dabbled with different mediums, pastels, charcoal, acrylics. But then life took over, as it does, and I had neither the time nor the room to pursue my artistic interests.
When I got a computer I started playing around with various graphics programs, but didn't find anything that could really help me create original art until my fiance, Eric, introduced me to Bryce 3D. I was thrilled to finally have a program that enabled me to really explore the realms of artistic expression. At first I followed Bryce tutorials and then started creating some original pieces.
When I was introduced to DAZ, by way of a great tutorial, I used it at first to create characters to import into Bryce renders. Then I began creating renders completely in DAZ and exploring its wide range of possibilities. Eventually my husband and I both got Vue 9 Esprit and since that time I've been working with it, learning more about it through tutorials at Geek at Play and an online class at LVS.
I still consider myself a beginner/hobbyist compared with the many awesome Vue artists out there, but I'm trying to improve my skills.
I recently opened an online store at Zazzle.com -- 3D Designs by Jayne. It features numerous products, from greeting cards to posters and wrapped canvas, from decorative tiles to laptop and iPad sleeves, with my original artwork on them.
