Jane Scobie is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice explores the fluid boundaries between the human and the nonhuman. Current research is focussed on the strandline as a witness to climate breakdown. Jane was awarded a Distinction for her MA in Arts and Science from Central Saint Martins (2024). Her Masters project Ear of the Sea and Other Stories was nominated for the NOVA 2024 Award and shortlisted for Maison/0 This Earth Award that celebrates the power of artistic practice to advocate for nature. The accompanying MA research essay explores the strandline, a ‘living system’ as material, model and metaphor to understand our relationship with the ocean in the context of climate breakdown. Jane uses materials and processes with a low environmental impact and has a circular creative approach to design. 
Recent achievements include EDGELANDS (2022) - a collaboration and sculpture installation at Wild Ken Hill, a project to restore nature, fight climate change, and grow healthy food across a coastal farm in West Norfolk. Artist in Resident at Ground Work Gallery, focused on Extraction (2023).  Artist in resident at Joya:Air - Art and Environment Residency (2024).  In 2022 Jane was awarded a British Council Venice Biennale Fellowship.
