Profile picture of Jane Gaona

I make eclectic, edgy, multi-media pieces often using symbolism to convey a thought or feeling.  My work is versatile and constantly changing. Most recently, during the Covid-19 pandemic, I began using concrete and botanicals in my pieces.

I rarely draw my designs - I prefer to design in an organic and unstructured style, experiencing the free-flow of thought and process along the way.  I get spurts of creative energy, then construct 3 or 4 pieces at a time, all at different phases in the construction process.

After the sudden death of my mother, I needed a creative outlet and fell down the “YouTube and Instagram rabbit hole”!  One search led to another which eventually led me to metalsmithing.  I took my first class at a local studio in 2016.  Since then, I have been very lucky to have studied under some of the best Jewelry Artists in the country (Robert Lopez, Jeff Fulkerson, Richard Salley, Susan Lenart Kazmer and Robyn Cornelius).

My first gallery piece "Covid-19" was recently accepted by the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities' summer exhibition, "Viral Influence: Art in the Time of Coronavirus".  This piece was constructed during the Corona Virus lockdown, Spring 2020.
