Jane Matthews, Writer and Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in art.
Ms. Matthews strongly believes the creative gene must run in her family. Her mother’s creativity sparked Ms. Matthews’ own interest in art, and Ms. Matthews’ three children are all artistically inclined. Ms. Matthews’ specialty is impressionistic art, abstract art, and writing. She has been a freelancer since 1962, and is thrilled to continue sharing her passions with others. She considers her greatest achievement to be having a poetry column in The Victoria Advocate from 2010 to 2012. She was also proud to contribute to the New Texas Handbook from 1998 to 2010, the Victoria Oral History Collection from 1999 to 2000, and the Texas State Stripes Magazine from 1993 to 2010.
Previously, Ms. Matthews was a producer and artist for Art Project Play, a research writer for the Victoria County Genealogical Magazine, an artist for the National Endowment of the Arts, a director of the One Seguin Art Center, a producer of the Godspell Musical at the Texas Theater, and a teacher of Project Y at the Children’s Pavilion at the World Fair Hemisphere 68. Other roles include teacher and co-chairman of the Very Special Art Festival, vestry member of the Episcopal Church of The Annunciation, and member of the board of directors of both the Nave Museum and the Regional Art Show at the Luling Central Texas Oil Museum. To prepare for her endeavors, Ms. Matthews earned an Associate of Art in graphic arts and communications from San Antonio College and joined the Victoria Genealogical Society, the Daughters of the Republic Texas, and the Daughters of the American Revolution.
When Ms. Matthews has spare time, she enjoys painting and gardening. She is also working on a genealogy project for her family, “The Ancestors of Jane Alice Rogers Matthews.” She has put together a great deal of information, and hopes to give her family a deeper understanding of their lineage. She feels it is important to know what has come before.
