Jane Crowell resides in Alexandria, Louisiana, with her husband and family.  She earned a B.S. degree from LSU, but never considered a study of art until she was living in Dallas, Texas, and needed art for her empty walls.  There she discovered that she enjoyed painting and began studying oil painting with accomplished Dallas painter, Ann Cushing Gantz.  Upon returning to Alexandria, Crowell studied serigraphy at Louisiana College nearby.  Also, she has taken pastel workshops with Albert Handell in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  She has participated in many local group exhibitions and has had several shows at River Oaks Square Arts Center in Alexandria, where she is a resident artist.

Presently this artist is working mainly in mixed media acrylic and collage. She shows her work at The Foyer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
