wildlife • conservation • art

❝ I am passionate about nature and I am passionate about creativity. I'm lucky enough to be able to combine these two loves in my career as an artist.

I am a painter and street artist based in Dorset, working under the name Jane Mutiny, which I use to raise awareness of endangered wildlife, conservation and the extinction crisis. An anatomical heart and the extinction symbol can be found in all my street art. I'm a proud

Jane Laurie, aka Mutiny, is an artist based in Dorset. She works across a variety of scales and mediums from pencil drawings, ink and oil paintings to murals and street art, with wildlife always at the heart of everything she produces. Jane has a huge interest in science and nature which she constantly explores through her colourful and lively work. She specialises in artworks depicting endangered wildlife with the aim of highlighting the extinction crisis - and the wider problems surrounding it - through her work, and has worked with charities, conservation groups, schools and councils to do this. Jane is always keen to share her ever-growing knowledge with people by collaborating and learning. She gives talks on her work and how people can join her on the mission to care for our home.

Jane grew up in Dorset and graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2007. She has been lucky enough to travel all over the world - Galápagos, Madagascar, New Zealand, India, Tanzania and Thailand to name a few - experiencing some truly astonishing wildlife encounters. These moments have helped shape her practise and have inspired her to keep working towards a caring, more equal attitude towards all species. #LoveWildlife.
