Berman has plenty of designer credibility and elements to draw from as she was trained in two artistic genres Fashion design (BA) 1980 and consequently employment and then later a Fine Art BA Hons in 2008.

Berman's fictional landscapes and scenes depict near recognisable objects and natural forms into lush paintings. Nature's biodiversity and the seasons can be incapsulated in movement or stillness suggesting the passing of time. Flatness of shapes and design reflect modern values and concerns that are present in our environments.

Working mainly with charcoal, I have a passion for drawing wildlife and wild places. I enjoy the variety and complexity of interesting marks that can be made with something as simple as a piece of burnt wood.

Collectively called Land Vessels, these works have been inspired by the various effects of erosion on the landscape and geological strata which she experienced whilst walking the Welsh, Cornish and Scottish coastlines. Being a Boat Builder at Cardiff docks her father has been an important influence as Jayne tries to emulate his accurate eye for line and form.
