Jane Orleman – Painter & Co-creator of Dick & Jane’s Spot



The primary focus of my painting is the exploration of psychic reality through symbolic narrative imagery. Through an intuitive process, the choice of symbols and use of color combine to express my physical, emotional and spiritual life experiences. These mural sized paintings pull images from my inner world to reveal my philosophical beliefs to my conscious self. 

Dick Elliott and Jane Orleman created an art site that includes their own yard art and a collection of more than 260 pieces by over 65 artists. Since Dick’s passing in 2008, Jane continues to maintain the site and create additional artwork. Since 1982, over 120 newspaper articles have been written and 37 TV pieces made about Dick & Jane’s Spot.  The Spot has been a work in progress for 44 years. What you see from outside the fence is what you see.  The rest is a private yard so please respect the fences. Dick & Jane’s Spot is dedicated to the philosophy of “one hearty laugh is worth ten trips to the doctor.”
