Jane Ruggiero is an Adelaide Artist whose portraits are known for their beauty and modern yet retro feel.
Jane worked as a professional actress - in film theatre and tv - also a high school teacher in English and Drama. Then she had a breakdown. She was dignosed with BIPOLAR 2 and from this pain - found a way to communicate through her drawings. Thus - the light and dark in the faces of her subjects.
Ruggiero creates from her home in Adelaide- SA which she shares with her husband Gabriele and two russian blue cats. "Like FRIDA KAHLO , I also feel that PAINTING saved my life.
Her work is compelling.
