Jane Pestell-Litten – Artist Biography

Jane Pestell-Litten is a West Australian artist who works primarily in the traditional mediums of charcoal, watercolour and oils. Jane’s work is exclusively figurative (whole and portrait). Her charcoals are large and lively, strong in line and style, often incorporating watercolour.

Jane Pestell-Litten is driven to capture the brilliance of the West Australian light and paints in the style of Realist/Photorealist movement. Her oils depict the actuality of what the eye can see, yet allows for subject ambiguity to enable individual interpretation. Over the years, Jane has studied and worked with a collective of well-known West Australian artists such as Christopher Spaven, Brian Simmonds, Marous Beilby, Drewfus Gates etc. Her work is held in numerous private collections.

Jane’s exploration of the rendering of everyday characters, situations, and dilemmas of commonplace themes aims to encourage us to reflect on the beauty of those otherwise overlooked “ordinary” moments that are the threads of our lives.
