She is currently working on metal and stone sculptures.

Jane Pettit is known for her unique sculptural shapes and unusual juxtaposition of materials. She is a mixed media artist and sculptor using primarily glass, stone, ceramics and found objects. Broken dishes become swirls of motion and color. Reflective surfaces add movement to her sculpture and murals.

The recurring themes in her art are relationships, people’s similarities and differences, the preciousness of small moments and the bounty of the natural world. The Abstract Expressionists, the Fauvists and the Expressionists inspire her art.
