Meet Featured Artist, Jane Fier!
Fier's artwork is on display now until November 6 at our Southwest location, 4301 W William Cannon Drive.
Fier is originally from Iowa, but her husband's career in the military and then later on as a pilot required that their family move around the country a lot. She and her husband ultimately decided to settle in Austin because of the fact that both of their sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren reside in the Central Texas area.
As a new mother, Fier began taking painting classes for fun. What started as a hobby took a more serious turn when Fier enrolled in college-level courses. She would eventually go on to get a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the University of West Georgia in the late 1990's. Once her children reached high school, Fier began working part-time in galleries and fine arts centers, which increased both her exposure to art and her appreciation for it.
