Jane Goldman (b. 1951) originally from Dallas, Texas, received her BA from Smith College in Massachusetts and her MFA from the University of Wisconsin– Madison. She is experienced in a wide range of media, including watercolor, oils, intaglio, lithography, woodcut, and screenprinting. Her works draw inspiration from direct observations of scenic landscapes and marine life. Many of her paintings and prints reflect these experiences through leafy, organic layers of depth and a flowing or rounded abstraction, a style which she calls “lyrical realism,” that considers color and form, creating unique interpretations of still lifes and abstract art. Goldman’s works can be seen in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, the Brooklyn Museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, and many other collections, Goldman has also received residency fellowships in Ireland, Germany, and France. She lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.
