watercolourist Jane Saborio was born in Medellin, Columbia, and
is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the
Artistes de France and Arts et Lettres. Pursuing her lifelong
love of painting, Ms. Saborio creates softly evocative renditions
of nature and her surroundings, expressions of her emotional response
to colour, light and form. In the tradition of the French master
impressionists she works whenever possible "en plein air"
on location in her beloved south of France, where she has been
recognized as an impressionist and awarded an impressive number
of medals for the composition, originality and technique of her
florals, architectural images and landscapes. She works wet in
wet with a limited palette of three primary colours, blended on
her unique trademark of a large dinner plate used as a palette.
The plate itself becomes a beautiful abstract work of art as she
mixes her colours.
by the changing light and shadows at different times of day
and under varying atmospheric conditions, she returns to her
favourite places at dawn, midday and dusk to capture breathtakingly
beautiful images with an exotic, tropical Spanish flavour.
Her work is featured in the collections of the Royal Bank of
Canada Head Offices and the Korean Embassy in Vancouver, BC
and in private collections in Canada, the United States, England,
France, Holland, Italy, Japan, Costa Rica and Mexico.
