ARTIST & AUTHOR
jANE HANNA sTOUDT
Jane Hanna Stoudt was born to two artists in the Texas Hill Country. She is married to her husband Jerome and together they have nine children and eight grandchildren. Jane grew up in the country and enjoyed spending her time outdoors with her horses and many other farm animals, some of which were quite unconventional: a brown bear, a pet owl and a lion. It was in her love of nature and God’s creations that Jane developed her love of contemplative living.
As an author, and artist Jane can either be found working on her books or deep in contemplative thought as she paints. A lover of God’s word since childhood, Jane began studying and writing about biblical living in 2003 and has continued to share her joys, sorrows and lessons learned as she walks with Christ. It is through Jane’s writing that she encourages other believers to stay on the path and draw close to the Father in close relationship.
Like many artists, Jane’s passion to create is strong and she began studying the works of her favorite impressionist artists and slowly mastered her own techniques in her studio. Art became her therapy as she used it to overcome trauma. She began painting angels, weddings and commissions for others. To date, Jane has painted over 300 commissions and to date all 475 paintings she has painted are sold. Her paintings are collected internationally. Jane not only paints on canvas but is also known for her murals that can be found painted in homes and businesses in Arkansas and Missouri.
