Jane Maxwell is a collage artist whose work is largely focused on women, body image, and the feminine ideal. Her collages are deeply layered works, combining colors, textures, and texts that surround and become the female figure. After graduating from Middlebury College in 1986 as a literature major, Jane worked in the public relations field for ten years before turning her full attention to art. At that time she took her interest in collage and a natural affinity for found papers and objects and delved into a range of mixed media-classes at the DeCordova Museum School and at The Museum School.

Maxwell's work has been shown in New York City, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Newport, Rhode Island, London, and at multiple Miami Art Fairs. Recently, Maxwell was selected to be included in the 30th anniversary edition of Who's Who in American Art. She has been a guest lecturer at Wellesley College, Stonehill College, and The New England Art Institute, on the topic of body image and art. Her work has been the focus of numerous newspaper and magazine articles and has been featured in many art books, including Collage for the Soul (Rockport Books) and Mixed Media Collage (Quarry Books).
