When Masterton Trust Lands Trust called for community interest in a new public gallery in February 2016, Jane put up her hand faster than you can say 'blue-and-yellow-make-green'.
And, ConArt was born.
Jane formed a cadre of keen fellow artists to bring ConArt to life. Jane has been the driving force behind the vision of ConArt being a place - a community - where artists based in the Wairarapa can professionally promote and sell their work.
Jane is Chair of ConArt Gallery & Studios Inc. As such she is our sponsor liaison. Jane is also the main point of contact for booking our working artist studios.
Jane is a professional artist.

"While studying architecture and design, I began painting to earn a few extra dollars, never imagining it would turn into a much loved career, including illustration and teaching art to adults.
"I'm a landscape painter first and foremost, but also love our NZ birds, and work in both oils and water colours.
I've had numerous solo exhibitions at venues such as the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art & History, as well as exhibiting in a variety of galleries and many group shows all over New Zealand during the past 25 years.
"Commissions continue to make up a large part of my work."
- Jane Sinclair, Masterton
