Kinokuniya Sydney Book Launch!
June 16th, 2018

What a fun day at Kinokuniya Sydney for a demo and work-along with author and artist Jane Davenport as she shows us how to draw Fabulous Figures!

Jane Davenport’s fabulous, fun, and amazingly easy techniques nurture creativity and playful experimentation in aspiring artists. In Fabulous Figures, Jane lays out the basics and walks you through working with different mediums; drawing the head, face, clothing, hair, and features; and constructing figures inspired by fashion, fantasy, life drawing, and more.


2017 started with a celebration! The launch of  my Art Supplies Line with American Crafts in ‘Jane-uary’ was a big, fun success!
Jane Davenport ® Mixed Media is now available in 1200 Michaels stores across the USA and Canada, and in amazing stores around the world!
As well as right here of course (Click here to see)!
