About Jayne Somogy

Jayne Somogy Artist Bio
~ Jayne's education includes a B.A. in Theater as well as a Professional Certificate--Summa Cum Laude in Fashion Design. In 1987 one of her designs won second place in a national design contest, "Suit of the Future."
~ In 2014, at age 68, Jayne turned her creative focus to art working mostly in pastels, charcoal, ink, pencil, colored pencil, & acrylics, with a fine attention to detail and an adventurous approach to color, and often creates dimension in her work with fabric, apparel trim, feathers, jewelry, Swarovski rhinestones & beads, and paper collage. Since Jayne spent many years creating and beading intricate belly dance costumes for herself and others, she now uses that expertise to make tiny, colorful beaded pillows out of fabric that has been printed with her artwork, available from her shop on the etsy.com website (www.etsy.com/shop/RaqsRags).
~Many of her pieces have been featured in the various groups on FineArtAmerica.com, and her portrait "Contestant Number 4" won 1st place in a recent FineArtAmerica contest.
** Original artwork available from XanaduGallery.com, SaatchiArt.com, and ArtsyHome.com.

***Artist Statement***
I strive for truth, beauty, harmony and peace in my life including in my art. I love beautifully curving lines and bright gorgeous colors in unusual combinations, and precise detail. I have had a lifetime love affair with the exotic—people, places, objects, music. I have the soul of a gypsy, traveling through time and space by way of books, TV and internet so as to inform myself about life, and the customs, history, environment and appearance of its fascinating, diverse inhabitants—past, present and future—so that I can present them to you, preserving indigenous cultures through my art before they disappear. I am accepting of every type of human and I love drawing all of them! My style is realistic yet whimsical and I hope my sense of humor comes through in my work because . . . well, because life is just . . . FUNNY!
