Jane Simpson gained a postgraduate diploma from the Royal Academy Schools in 1993. The paintings of Morandi have informed her sculptures over a long period. This has resulted in a number of works consisting of collections of small vessels made in a variety of materials such as ceramics, wax and silicon rubber. Jane is also well known for her work with ice, using refrigeration units to control freezing and melting, exploring the material as a metaphor for dissolution and temporality. She was one of the artists included in Sensation, at the Royal Academy in 1997. She lives and works in London.
