“Since art has always been my passion, I am especially fortunate to also have been able to make it my career.” Since graduating from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, Jane has worked as a commercial artist for ad agencies, entertainment companies, book publishers, and toy companies. Her client list includes Disney, Warner Brothers, Sesame Street, Mattel Toys, Tomy Toys, Macmillan
Publishing, Scholastic Publishing, Random House, and many more.
Jane Yamada now lives in Erie and enjoys the more relaxed lifestyle that Colorado has to
offer. She now pursues her love of painting – especially the aspen trees that grow throughout Colorado. She creates a 3 dimensional world of “floating leaves”, by painting scores of individual leaves and attaching them to her painted backgrounds. Working with imaginative color palettes, she paints fanciful, colorful and unique aspen scenes.
