Jayne was born in Perth and grew up in Canberra. In 1962, she obtained a Diploma of Art from RMIT, majoring in printed textiles and painting. After a year teaching, she spent most of the next decade overseas in London and Nigeria, in positions of interior designer and colour consultant.

On her return to Australia, Jayne worked for architects in Sydney on design projects including for Westpac and the NSW Supreme Court. This led to her establishing a business as an art consultant, one of the first in Sydney, which she maintained for more than 20 years. Jayne made a point of using the work of up-and-coming artists while building her own collection. In 1974 she began studying for an Architectural Drafting Certificate at Sydney Tech, graduating in 1980.

Jayne was always interested in design, colour & fashion. Her various art, print and ceramic collections, most notably the Clarice Cliff – grew out of her time in London in the 1960s. From that period she also cultivated an idiosyncratic approach to her own clothing and jewellery.  In the 1990’s Jayne began working with felt, becoming an accomplished artist and exhibitor.

Jayne contributed a great deal of time to volunteering for charity, particularly for Wrap with Love where she remained for 25 years, taking on the role of Chairperson in 2010. She was awarded an OAM for service to the community in the Queen’s Birthday Honours of 2017.
