Over the years, she designed and made wedding dresses, costumes, and dance dresses. JaneRae had a passion for quilting. She was always working on multiple projects. She had a desire to learn new methods and perfect her craft. Her second love was painting nature in oil paints, from flowers to animals, seascapes to majestic mountains. She loved to capture the beauty she saw everywhere. She loved the outdoors and all of God's creations. She always found time to stop to take pictures of flowers, wildlife, or the mountains so she could paint them.
