jane with lobsterJane Darke lives on the North Coast of Cornwall. This is the subject of her work as a painter, filmmaker & writer. She has a close connection to the place, particularly the littoral zone, between high and low tide. Jane was married to the playwright Nick Darke until his death in 2005. He grew up on this stretch of coast and taught her everything he had learned while they fished for lobsters and mackerel from their small boat and explored the rocky shoreline.  See www.nickdarke.net
