Hi, I'm Jane Dolan. I'm an artist and professional organizer.
I create art, using stamps, paper, ink & quotes, blending them together into seamless pieces that follow in the rubber stamping tradition of Kurt Schwitters, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and perhaps most famously, Andy Warhol.
What began as a way for me to express my gratitude to my organizing clients - through hand stamped thank you cards - bloomed into a love of the intricacies and delicacies of designing with rubber stamps.
It was natural for me to start incorporating quotes into my work. Quotes give us something to turn to when our own words fail us. Sometimes Shakespeare, or Emily Dickinson, or Goethe, or John Cage, or Pearl S. Buck, or Emerson, or Thoreau, or Maya Angelou, can say what we're trying to say hundreds, if not thousands, of times better than we can.
My hope is that my art sparks something in you. That it gives words to something you've always known, but maybe couldn't quite articulate.
