A life-long passion for painting started with lessons at age seven from a master painter Mary MacGillivray in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.  As a child Jana never went anywhere without a sketch book, drawing friends lazing in a field or climbing a tree.  In high school she would sit behind the big guy so the teacher wouldn’t see her paper was for drawing, not for taking notes.

She has constantly pursued her love of painting while balancing life with her two daughters and a second career in film as a Costume Supervisor having worked on a long list of Hollywood blockbusters. She is a graduate of St. Francis Xavier University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology which has fueled her constant curiosity in what motivates people.

Jana’s paintings are in numerous private collections and have been shown in galleries in B.C., Nova Scotia and Seattle.

Jana Rayne MacDonald lives and paints in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
