Jane Jelley

Jane Jelley is a painter, specializing in still life and landscape, who became intrigued by the unusual qualities of Vermeer's pictures, and the lively arguments about whether he used a camera obscura. Familiar with traditional materials, Jane decided to find out for herself whether there was a practical way to transfer an images from a lens to a canvas, and she published a paper about her experiments in 2013. Jane lives and works in Oxford.
