Audacious art/word sanity. I have dedicated my life's work to creating socially conscious art to counter main stream imagery, especially on behalf of women, children and our living mother earth. "Jane is the artist the world has been waiting for--in images and words she addresses the crux of the world's problems: militarism, injustice, gender and economic imbalance and yet, she also expresses the other side: great hope and joy. The color is wonderful, as well, and an important part of her statements".

About the Artist / Author
Jane Evershed: Mother, Artist, Activist, Poet and Presenter

Born in England in 1959 and then moving to South Africa at the age of nine, the experience of growing up during the racist Apartheid era taught Jane Evershed the nature of domination firsthand from a young age and informs her artistic consciousness to this day.

In 1990 Jane began raising her two children as a single mother in Minneapolis Minnesota in the US, using the income she made from self-publishing her art series, most notably, The Power of Woman. Her note cards, prints and journals have been nationally distributed since 1989. Jane's activism began at the age of 21 when she was jailed briefly in South Africa for opposing the system of apartheid. She spent two years on The Board of Women Against Military Madness and was jailed briefly for activism against an arms manufacturer all were found not guilty under the Geneva Conventions. She now lives in/with nature where sanity reigns supreme.
