Jane Bayne

I have loved art since I was in grade school. One Sunday afternoon, my mother took me to her string quartet practice. Practice was held at the home of a couple on the art faculty of Washington University. While her husband played the viola with the quartet, the wife gave me painting lessons. That may not have been her idea of a relaxing Sunday afternoon, but i thoroughly enjoyed it. I discovered then that making art was something I really enjoyed. I have been involved with art ever since. I graduated from SMU with a degree in art and  fashion design. After rearing a family, I returned to college for a teaching certification and taught art in the Plano, Texas program. I continue to teach students how to look at and how to love art as I tour them in my work as a docent for the Dallas Museum of Art.
