Jane Gottlieb has been expressing her joy of art with paint, shapes and colors since she was very young. She started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began hand-painting on her Cibachrome prints over 35 years ago. Before Photoshop she found a way to express a new magical reality with the vivid, saturated and unrealistic colors she painted into each photographic print.

“My passion is to paint, collage and enhance them with Photoshop, creating my own idyllic wonderful uplifting world! I have had my website with liveBooks for many many years & have always been proud of my site & I am told over & over how people love my website!”

Right now Jane is having a 4 month exhibition entitles “Jane Gottlieb Photographs France” at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB!
