Born in Northeast PA, Harris has worked as a professional artist and teacher in Miami, FL for the last 25 years working out of a studio at the South Florida Art Center for ten of those years.

Her work has been narrative, figurative and primarily auto-biographical. Of late her parallel interest in nature has found its way into her work.

An interest in the process and materials of art led her to explore printmaking and hand papermaking.

Jane has taught at the SFAC, the Hebrew Academy, the Bass Museum School, MDC and Immaculata - LaSalle High School where she served as head of the Fine Arts Department.

Her work has been exhibited at a variety of venues including the South Florida Art Center, Bakehouse Art Complex, Bass Museum, University of Costa Rica, "Small Works" at NYU,  Inglenook Winery in the Napa Valley,  Graham Center at Florida International University, "Very Special Arts"- a State of Florida traveling exhibition and an environmental art project at St. Thomas University.

She continues to follow her artistic vision, working in a studio at - 4432 SW 74 Avenue  Miami, FL 33155- in the Bird Road District.
