Jane Voorhees has made Asheville, NC her home for over 20 years. Drawn to the extraordinary beauty of the western North Carolina mountains, she is inspired by the ever changing colors and moods of the landscape. Jane's great passions include painting, books and travel.
Jane grew up in a large creative family. Her father, Edwin and mother Mildred, both painters, made the decision in 1964 to leave NYC corporate life and to move the family of eight to the coast of North Carolina to pursue their art interests. Influenced by their creative endeavors and their artistic nurturing, Jane as well as several of her siblings have developed artistic careers of their own. A story about the art interests of the Voorhees family was featured in Our State Magazine, May 2003.
