Born in 1979, Jane Samuels has developed a love for the arts, politics, teaching, and animal and human rights campaigning.

Currently working as a professional artist from Hare Court Studio and an SpLD tutor in Manchester’s Universities, Samuels continues to develop work grounded in Psychogeography, which challenges the boundaries of legality, public vs. private space, and our relationship with the land. Samuels work is housed in several private collections, and she continues to exhibit across the UK.
