Jane Joseph is a painter, printmaker and teacher. She was born in Surrey and studied at Camberwell School of Art. She has taught at Wimbledon School of Art and Morley College, London for many years. Joseph has exhibited regularly since 1973 and her work is included in collections including The National Art Library (V&A Museum), The British Library, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and Yale Center for British Art, Connecticut.
In 1999 The Folio Society commissioned her to make etchings to accompany ‘If This is a Man’ by Primo Levi followed by ‘The Truce’ in 2001. These prints contribute to a substantial body of work in small black and white etchings and large charcoal drawings.
